World Religions Summit final statement to G8/G20 leaders

World Religions Summit final statement to G8/G20 leaders

80 faith leaders from the G8/G20 nations including Archbishop Fred Hiltz meeting in Winnipeg, Manitoba, from June 21 to 23, 2010 agree to monitor decisions made by government leaders . "In a spirit of positive collaboration, acknowledging that both political leaders and faith leaders carry tremendous responsibility for setting the parameters for our common life, we will monitor the decisions our government leaders take, including decisions made at the 2010 political leaders' summits in Canada. We expect follow-through on past promises. We expect bold new actions based on the values and recommendations outlined here. If we fail in these goals, we fail our children who look to us to secure a viable future for them. Our prayers and wishes for wisdom and compassion are with our political leaders at this critical moment."
