01 30.11 BK Delegation in front of COP entrance

Monday 30th November has been a busy day for the Brahma Kumaris COP21 team.  This is the first day of COP21 with nearly 200 nations and their leaders being present.  Brahma Kumaris were able to be present when the USA President gave his powerful speech and there is the feeling of witnessing history in the making.  Brahma Kumaris also attended a multifaith meeting in the IUCN pavilion. There is a recognition of the value of the faith-based organisations and their ideas.
