Faiths and the environment

The range and scope of religious action on environmental issues is growing all the time, and while ARC is involved in partnership with many initiatives worldwide it is very important to be aware of the great work being done by other faith groups and religious NGOs. Each of the sections on religions has a page of links to faith-specific environmental agencies and campaigns (see below) and here are useful links to websites about multi-faith action to care for creation, new campaigns and infrastructure support agencies.




New campaigns

our voices
International multi-faith campaign urging the faithful to sign up to a petition and to offer prayers in advance of the UN Climate Summit to be held in Paris 2015. “At previous climate summits the world’s politicians have failed to reach meaningful agreement on how to respond. But the UN believes there IS hope of global agreement in Paris 2015 IF the moral call for action is so loud that politicians can’t ignore it.”

Fast for the climate
Website where you can register for an international multi-faith campaign of monthly fasting.“Stand with thousands of others fasting for action on climate change. A growing movement of youth, environmentalists and people of faith are showing their strength of commitment by going without food once a month to call for world leaders to do more to solve the climate crisis. Show your support.”

FaithAction
FaithAction is a network of Faith based and Community organisations serving their communities by delivering public services (such as childcare, health and social care, housing and welfare to work). We empower Faith based and Community organisations by offering support and training, disseminating key information and acting as a connector between Government and grassroot organisations.




Multifaith environmental networks

GreenFaith
GreenFaith's mission is to inspire, educate and mobilize people of diverse religious backgrounds for environmental leadership.  Our work is based on beliefs shared by the world’s great religions - we believe that protecting the earth is a religious value, and that environmental stewardship is a moral responsibility.

The National Religious Partnership for the Environment
The National Religious Partnership for the Environment is an association of independent faith groups across a broad spectrum: the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops along with its affiliated program arm the Catholic Climate Covenant, the National Council of Churches USA and its affiliate Creation Justice Ministries, the Jewish Council on Public Affairs and its affiliate the Coalition on the Environment and Jewish Life, and the  Evangelical Environmental Network. 

Green Pilgrimage Network
The vision of the Green Pilgrimage Network is of pilgrims, and the pilgrim cities and places that receive them, becoming models of care for the environment and leaving a positive footprint on this earth. Members of the Green Pilgrimage Network support this vision, and commit to create an action plan to transform their pilgrim city, place or route into a green, sustainable model in keeping with the beliefs of our faith or the faiths of their pilgrimage place.
