Create your Faith Plan

The process for developing the Faith Plans builds on the experience developed during the first Long-term Faiths Commitments programme in 2009. Following on from that, faiths began imagining and planning the future – with real world, measurable impacts and initiatives.

Our world  is irreplaceable.
Let’s save it.

Webinar: How to develop a Faith Plan

Watch the replay of our webinar with early lessons for long-term success

This was the first in a new series of discussion-based workshops for exchange and learning, for people and groups who are new to the concept of a Faith Plan. The workshop contains valuable guidance from Sara Kaweesa of A Rocha Uganda and other contributors who have already developed a Faith Plan or who are currently in the early stages of doing so. It includes:

  • Key processes involved in developing a Faith Plan  

  • Essential elements of what a 'good' Faith Plan looks like

  • Support and resources to help you
     

The workshop provides practical advice on what is meant by faith-consistent, values-driven mobilisation of assets. It also introduces participants to useful online guides and resources. You can also review the interactive discussion between the panel and participants.

Start from where you are

Why take a baseline survey?

We've created a baseline survey that can help you get an overview of the environmental actions that you and your community, organisation or network have taken before developing a Faith Plan. It's important to know where you are starting from. You may discover that you have already achieved much more than you think.

The survey will enable you to:
 

  • Take stock of the past and celebrate the successes and learnings from commitments made already.

  • Gain a clear understanding of the present, summarising the current context for each area of action.

  • Set out a starting point from which to imagine and plan the future, using real world, measurable impacts to plan ideas.

 

We recommend that you first download this survey and complete it over time once you have gathered responses to the relevant sections. You will then be able to review your responses to help guide your reflection and planning for the next five to seven years.
