Photo: The Clyde Arc (“Squinty”) Bridge over the River Clyde in the city center of Glasgow. The bridge connects Finnieston, near the ‘Scottish Event Campus’, with Pacific Quay and the Glasgow Science Centre in Govan. A feature of the bridge is its curved design and the way it crosses the river at an angle.

Science, religion, art, and love can all be incorporated in community action. An example for that is the Eco-Pledge prepared by the Local Spiritual Assembly of Glasgow, UK, in connection with the Climate Conference COP26 held in its city last November. This wonderful resource can serve “as a tool for individuals and communities to reflect on and enable practical action towards the sustainable use of the world’s material resources.” Each of the beautifully illustrated 19 pages contains an idea for a practical action supported by science and a quotation from the Bahá’í Writings.
We can be inspired to incorporate these actions in our own life. In addition, we can strive for similar actions in our Bahá’í communities and by our institutions.
The Glasgow Bahá’ís’ “Eco-Pledge” is available for download on its website.
