Project EARTH – new initiative grown out of the Faith and Climate Change project

Project EARTH is a new initiative that has grown out of the Faith and Climate Change project.

It aims to enable conversations between faith communities across the West Midlands, about how to enable individuals and groups to respond positively to the challenges of climate change and sustainability.

EARTH is an acronym for Environment and Religions Transformation Hub. The key idea is the setting up of an interactive website and ‘Human Library’ that would enable faith communities to connect with each other to provide advice, support and training on practical issues related to sustainability and climate change, as well as the theological context.

They are conducting a Feasibility Study into the setting up of EARTH and would appreciate your support.

There are three ways that you can get involved:

By completing the online survey. The survey can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ProjectEARTH.

By attending a Focus Group Workshop. These workshops will be interactive and engaging, and give you the opportunity to meet up with other people in the region. Refreshments will be provided. They will be held at places of interest around the West Midlands.
