What is the Faith Plans programme?

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 loss of biodiversity and the destruction of the natural environment 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.

What is involved in the Plans?

We have identified Seven Key Areas  where faiths can have a significant impact – from their buildings, land, schools and investments to their purchasing power, influence and wisdom. Each faith group decides which areas apply to their own structure and outreach, and then plans how they will drive practical action on the environment.

Participants range from major international groups to small, local faith communities.
