For the second year in a row, the Cork Three Faiths Forum organised an Earth Day Celebration right in the centre of Cork City. The theme for Earth Day this year was ‘End Plastic Pollution’ and the Forum were delighted to be joined by a representative from VOICE Recycling Ambassador Program.
The weather was glorious and many of those in the park and those passing by joined the group to listen to readings from the Hebrew Scriptures, the Quran and the Christian Bible.
The delicious food was again supplied by the Real Olive Company in the English Market.
The aim of the Forum is to show solidarity with each other, the Creator and all of Creation. As Judaism, Christianity and Islam all share a common concern for creation, the Earth Day Celebration is a wonderful opportunity to highlight the need for all to live in right relationship with the Earth and to collaborate with each other in order to address the causes of climate and ecological degradation.
