Commitments by secular organisations to work with the faiths

1 Feb, 2010:

The significant new commitments by the faiths involve every one of those traditions taking major new steps in their efforts to protect the environment.

To do this they need secular partners who can bring specialist knowledge on topics as diverse as forests, farming, energy and economics to assist the faiths over the coming years.

At Windsor, UK, in November 2009, 18 secular organisations from around the world made commitments to partner with the faiths. This is the first time that so many environmental organisations have publicly committed themselves to take partnering with the faiths seriously.

ARC and UNDP look forward to working with the secular commitments as well as the faith commitments in the years to come.
