About the Faith Plans

The Faith Plans Programme is organised by FaithInvest and WWF's Beliefs and Values Programme and supported by a wide range of faith-based networks that are working with their own members to encourage them to take practical action on the environment, as well as by secular organisations that are supporting the Plans through resources and advice. 

The Faith Plans programme uses a framework called the Seven Key Areas as a starting point for faiths to think about as they begin developing their Plan. It's not essential to address all seven, so we invite faiths to choose which are best suited to their community.

Welcome to Faith Plans 

Martin Palmer, FaithInvest CEO and Faith Plans patron, welcomes you to the Faith Plans for People and Planet programme. We're delighted to have you join the Movement!

I urgently appeal, then, for a new dialogue about how we are shaping the future of our planet.

Faith Plans: Background

The Faith Plans build on the success of the original 2009 Faith Commitments which led to more than 60 Plans developed by faiths and faith-based organisations that have profoundly shaped the faiths' response to key environmental issues.

 

This started with 31 Plans launched at Windsor Castle in 2009 by HRH Prince Philip and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon with 32 more launched shortly afterwards, including 28 Plans from faith groups in sub-Saharan Africa.
