Faith for the Climate exists to encourage, inspire and equip faith communities in their work on the climate crisis. People of faith see our planet as a gift, and believe we have a sacred responsibility to show solidarity and support for those who have done the least to cause climate change but are suffering its worst impacts.

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.

Historic recognition for climate justice

A global initiative Faith for the Climate has supported has won prestigious recognition, raising awareness of the connection between the climate and ecological crisis and human rights.

“All life is interrelated. We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied into a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”

– Revd Dr Martin Luther King Jr (1929-1968), US Baptist minister, civil rights leader, and political thinker.

“When I marched in Selma (with Dr King), my feet were praying.”

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