FAITH PLANS

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 programme.

ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

The Faith Plans Programme is organised by FaithInvest and WWF's Beliefs and Values Programme, and includes representatives of all major faith traditions. It is supported by an unprecedented coalition of the world's leading faith-based networks and secular enviromental groups and UN bodies. This is already the biggest environmental initiative ever launched by the faiths.

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 programme 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 join the current Faith Plans programme.

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.
