Faith for the Climate exists to encourage, inspire and equip faith communities in their work on climate change. Climate change is the biggest and most urgent challenge facing humanity. People of faith see our planet as a gift, and believe we have a sacred responsibility to care for and protect the Earth’s climate for future generations.

Many of our faiths and belief systems also share a “Golden Rule”: treat others as you wish to be treated. Faith communities have a unique and precious role to play – in our thought, speech, worship and action, alongside and in partnership with secular environmental organisations – enabling people of faith to live out their calling by acting to protect the climate.

Growing within ourselves and and with each other
Our director, Shanon Shah, reflects on the trajectory of the faithinpired climate justice movement before, during and after COP26.

“Those of us who witness the degraded state of the environment and the suffering that comes with it cannot afford to be complacent. We continue to be restless. If we really carry the burden, we are driven to action. We cannot tire or give up. We owe it to the present and future generations of all species to rise up and walk!”

– Wangari Maathai (1940-2011), Kenyan activist and first African woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize

“Few are guilty, but all are responsible.”

– Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel (1907-1972), Jewish theologian, philosopher and US civil rights leader
