Faith in the Environment saw 200 local people from five different faith groups learn about climate change

Faith in the Environment, a Department for International Development funded project, saw 200 local people from five different faith groups in Peterborough learn about climate change and how to reduce their impact on the environment.

When it was launched in 2010 the five faith groups – Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Christian and Buddhist – took part in a range of interactive, hands-on workshops about the environment. They also attended green events to share eco-friendly tips with other members of their communities, and created art to showcase what they had 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.
