Faith Plans

For people and planet

Take action today
for future generations

OUR VISION

A world in which faith communities take practical action to protect the living planet, address climate change and promote sustainable development.

OUR MISSION

To support faith communities in developing their long-term Faith Plans by creating a global network to share advice, information and experience.

 
 

Faith Plans

The world's faiths are responding to the 'cry of the Earth and the cry of the poor' by developing Faith Plans for People and Planet – long-term faith commitments to use their buildings, lands, investments and influence to drive practical action to create a better world – for the benefit of people and planet, and for today's and future generations. Join the Movement!

Official launch of the Faith Plans programme today!

We are delighted to announce that, following months of work behind the scenes and discussions with our faith partners, Faith Plans for People and Planet has officially launched today!

Already scores of faith groups – reaching out to tens of millions of people – have pledged to develop a Faith Plan and we know that hundreds, possibly thousands, more will sign up via our coalition of Partners, many of whom will be working with their own networks and members to develop Faith Plans.

What are the Faith Plans?

The world's religious groups are developing Faith Plans for People and Planet, using their assets, investments, influence and resources to drive practical action on climate change, biodiversity and sustainable development over the next seven to ten years. 

 

This is the most ambitious environmental initiative ever launched by the world's faiths.

Why is this needed?

Right now the world is facing unprecedented challenges. Climate change, the destruction of the natural environment, the loss of biodiversity threaten all life on earth. In addition the impact of the coronavirus pandemic and the resulting global economic downturn have exaccerbated poverty, inequality and suffering across the world.
