Charte justice climatique

Éditions Arve et Lac, Collection Codes et Chartes Paroisse protestante de Chêne No. 1, pp. 56, ISBN 978-1519329905

Nous percevons les enjeux climatiques et la mise en danger des équilibres de la Biosphère comme touchant à un fondement crucial de la foi, à savoir la responsabilité envers autrui et la Création. C’est pour cette raison que des membres de la paroisse de Chêne, rassemblés en un petit groupe de réflexion, se sont fixés pour but de produire cette Charte de justice climatique.

Abstract:
The latest news from our planet is threatening: climate change, pollution, forest loss, species extinctions. All these words are frightening and there is no sign of improvement. Simple logic leads to the conclusion that humanity has to react, for its own survival. But at the scale of a human being, it is less obvious. Organizing one’s daily life in order to preserve the environment implies self-questioning, changing habits, sacrificing some comfort. In one word, it is an effort. Then, what justifies such an effort? The personal choice to act in order to preserve our environment is often made by simple altruism. This choice is based on our love for other human beings: our love for the others grounds our effort. Our moral values, our ethical reflections and our religious beliefs are the deep core of these choices. “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” (John 15.12 NRSV). This Charter shows the moral and religious values that can help us react regarding the current environmental crisis and it should empower us to transcend the ideas of effort and sacrifice in order to consider the respect of the shared house, in a prophetic fulfilment of the being.
