Join climate change charity Ashden for an exploratory look at how local authorities and faith groups can work together to further climate action with communities, as well as engaging more diverse groups on sustainability.
This session offers an opportunity to learn from London Borough of Brent’s innovative approach to incorporating the voices of faith communities into climate change action plans – and Brent’s Nadia Khan will go into detail on their plans and projects.
We’ll also hear from faith groups EcoSikh UK and The Bahu Trust on the unique ties of religion and climate action, as well as replicable projects that demonstrate the importance of councils and faiths working together to protect nature.
- Learn first-hand from Brent’s proactive approach to collaborating with faith communities, including developing faith specific climate action plans and local multi-faith forums
- Uncover new opportunities for expanding community engagement on climate action in your local area through a closer connection with faith groups
- Identify solutions to some of the barriers that those from underrepresented groups face when it comes to climate action and interacting with their local authority
