The Earth and all living things are as mutually dependent as bees and honey are.
- Brihadaranyaka Upanishad
FOR PEOPLE AND PLANET
The destruction of the natural environment – including the impact of climate change – is the biggest challenge to all life on earth. The world's major faiths are taking a lead by developing Faith Plans – long-term commitments looking at how they will manage their assets, investments, influence and resources to drive action on climate change, biodiversity and sustainable development over the next seven to ten years.
We invite all faith groups to join the Movement.
ABOUT FAITH PLANS
Faith Plans for People and Planet is an ambitious framework created by FaithInvest and WWF's Beliefs and Values Programme, aimed at inspiring faith communities to develop long-term commitments to use their assets, investments and influence for people and planet.
It is supported by a coalition of the world's leading faith-based networks and secular environmental groups and UN bodies.
We have a dedicated Faith Plans website – www.faithplans.org – which contains more details of the programme, including the Seven Key Areas framework, how you can sign up and who is involved. You can also find resources, inspiring case studies and examples of Faith Plans.
The Faith Plans framework builds on the success of the original 2009 Faith Commitments programme, organised by FaithInvest's parent organisation, the Alliance of Religions and Conservation (ARC). See below for more information on the 2009 Initiative and how to take part in the current Faith Plans initiative.
DEVELOP A FAITH PLAN
We invite all faith groups to develop a Faith Plan to address climate change and protect the planet.
2009 FAITH COMMITMENTS
The Faith Plans Programme builds on the success of the original 2009 Faith Commitments programme, organised by the Alliance of Religions and Conservation and launched in 2009 by HRH Prince Philip and the UN Secretary General HE Ban Ki-moon.
It resulted in more than 60 plans which have profoundly shaped the faiths’ response to key environmental issues over the last decade.
