The workshop featured the Faith Plans initiative which mobilises faith communities and organisations to create long-term action plans. The workshop also explored the relevance of Faith Plans to local resilience, capacity building, and a rights-based approach to faith-led environmental response during this decade of action. It drew on case studies and examples of existing faith-initiatives, and encouraged workshop participants to create a vision for their faith-community, explore how to get there, and identify what support might be needed throughout their Faith Plans journey.
