Education workshop in Tanzania, September 2013

This has been a packed year of eco action for our African faith partners. This latest newsletter has information about exciting developments in promoting faith-based environmental education and the first Ugandan network of faith groups working on the environment.

We also have wonderful updates of action by our faith partners, including the first interfaith day on the environment held on October 4 - the feast day of St Francis, the patron saint of animals and ecology.
