Create your Faith Plan
The process for developing the Faith Plans builds on the experience developed during the first Long-term Faiths Commitments initiative 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.

It includes:

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.
