On July 21, 2015, in Paris, at the Economical, Social and Environmental Council (Cese), the Summit of Consciences regrouped many religious and political leaders from all over the world. Among others were François Hollande, Laurent Fabius, Ségolène Royal, Nicolas Hulot, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Cardinal Peter Turkson, president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, Kofi Annan, former secretary general of the United Nations; Muslim, Sikh, Hindu, Buddhist, Taoist and Shintoist representatives were also present, along with Jean-Luc Fauque, a high-ranking Masonic dignitary.

All day long, speech after speech called for "awareness" in the struggle against global warming and to "save the planet". According to the newspaper La Croix on July 22, "a Buddhist nun invited the whole assembly - including the ministers - to breathe in order to tune in to nature; a Hindu quoted Gandhi calling for a change in attitude; children carried a symbolic planet earth (on the picture) to the Patriarch Bartholomew under the eyes of a slightly unsettled Laurent Fabius..." The next day, on, Anne Dolhein observed that religious are never heard when they "speak out against abortion or divorce"; they are asked "to worry only about what is on the inside, and without any ostentatious signs." But "the world is willing to showcase them when they speak like it." In the end, "it is not so much the religions that bother the global warming secularists, as their differences and disagreements: if everyone wishes to hold hands and stop pretending to have the truth, what is there to complain about?"

On the same day, in Rome, 70 mayors of important cities throughout the world met at the initiative of the Chancellor of the Pontifical Academies of Sciences and Social Sciences, Cardinal Sánchez Sorondo. The theme of the meeting was "Modern Slavery and Climatic Change: The Cities' Commitment". Anne Hidalgo, socialist mayor of Paris, was present at this symposium that she called "a very useful big first step."

According to Radio Vatican, the next day, on the theme "Prosperity, Persons and Planets: Acquire a Sustainable Development in Our Cities", the mayors especially insisted on "the elimination of corruption, and an end to poverty and the trafficking of human beings." This "open, voluntary and participative" alliance plans "to promote sustainable urban development" and wishes "to involve all interested parties." A project was drawn up, laying out 11 objectives, at the head of which are "an end to poverty and extreme hunger", then "the assurance of equality between men and women," the guarantee of "universal access to health, education and the basic necessities."

The document, co-signed by Pope Francis, hopes for "a redistribution of public financing of military expenses towards urgent investments for sustainable development." Anne Dolheim for wonders: "Do they believe in it? No matter, others believe in it for them, believers of a new religion in which the Earth is the center and the horizon. A new religion that welcomes all the others, as long as they submit to it."
