Faiths Together for Carbon Neutral Cities: an Interfaith Panel Discussion with Grassroots Leaders

Faith for the Climate is proud to be hosting a discussion panel at the COP26 Green Zone highlighting the work of our Capacity Building Group.

This event was live streamed and can be watched here

The panel will include Amandeep Kaur Mann (EcoSikh UK), Priya Koria (Hindu Climate Action), Kamran Shezad (Bahu Trust) and Olivia Fuchs (Eco Dharma Network). It will be followed by a response from Olivia Hanks, Quakers in Britain’s representative on Make COP Count and Faith for the Climate’s Steering Group, and chaired by Canon Giles Goddard, founder and Chair of Faith for the Climate and member of the Church of England’s Environment Working Group.

The panel members are part of the Faith for the Climate capacity building project – a unique case study of the power of interfaith and intra-faith collaboration on climate action in cities and the built environment. Action on climate change is urgent, but it is also a new and confusing area for many people, who need an entry point to feel connected to the issue and to take ownership of their responses and contributions.

This event will showcase how emerging grassroots leaders from minority backgrounds in the UK have transformed and empowered themselves and their communities to take more effective climate action.
