Get ready for COP26: be part of climate action

The urgency of the climate crisis hasn’t changed. With the UK set to host critical UN climate talks in 2021, now is the time for faith communities to get skilled up and ready to take action against climate breakdown.

Join us and get ready to take action at our interfaith regional online workshops!

By participating you will:

  • Learn about the unique role of faith communities in the climate justice movement
  • Connect and build relationships with other faith communities in your region
  • Get equipped to take climate action through specific skills sessions
  • Hear about local and national climate initiatives you can be part of

Where?

Workshops will be online regionally specific sessions for Leeds, Leicester and Manchester areas so that you can build local interfaith connections. In addition, there will be three options for online skills workshops open to all regions.
