Earth Day 2021

On Earth Day (22nd April 2021) Footsteps explored Local to Global – the power of interfaith action for the climate. Our webinar attracted 20 participants ranging from northern California, Warwick University to local activists and environmental campaigners.  

We saw two short videos about Footsteps’ work in Birmingham, then Marilyn Hull from Birmingham Anglican Climate Action chaired a lively discussion sharing experiences and opportunities to work together. Although the starting point was the same as our recent event for Sacred People Sacred Earth, the discussion went in a different direction – showing the many possibilities for engaging with climate action.
