Yeb Saño talks to Fast for the Climate about the People’s Pilgrimage

On 10 September, Fast for the Climate hosted a Google Hangout with our movement’s founder, Naderev ‘Yeb’ Saño, where he talked about his work with the People’s Pilgrimage this year. What is the People’s Pilgrimage, you ask?

In Yeb’s own words:

Around the world people of faith are setting out on pilgrimages, big and small, to visit places at the heart of the climate crisis. To places of hope and resistance, but also to places at risk or already suffering the consequences of a less stable planet.

Our journeys, our stories, are the key to this crisis. Every step we take, every story we share, lifts up the human face of climate change. Bringing hope to those without it, or showing the reality to those that still doubt it.

We are walking with a clear message – we want a future that is safe from climate change, with 100% clean energy. Our world can be cleaner, safer, more prosperous, more just – but it will need all of us to unlock this potential.

If you have fasted with us – especially as part of our 365 Days of Fasting from Lima to Paris – we strongly encourage you to sign up and share your fasting journey on the People’s Pilgrimage site. The great people at OurVoices have created a special category when you sign up for fasting for the climate, and we hope that as our Fasters join the Pilgrimage it will show a virtual fasting pilgrimage from Lima to Paris.
