Faith in the Environment

This is the third and final year of the DFID (Department for International Development) funded project, Faith in the Environment, which has seen 200 local people from five different faith groups in Peterborough learn about climate change and how to reduce their impact on the environment.

Since 2010 the five faith groups, Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Christian and Buddhist, have been taking part in a range of interactive, hands-on workshops about the environment. They have also been attending green events to share eco-friendly tips with other members of their communities, and creating art to showcase what they have learnt.

The Faith project has explored how to reach a diverse range of people with an environmental message and how to get that message passed from person to person within the faith community.
