The West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) holds regular ‘Greener forums’ open to communities in the region, and in June the focus will be on faith communities.

The forum will be

  • looking closer at the West Midlands environmental targets;
  • discussing the role of faith in contributing towards climate action;
  • community retrofit and its opportunities;
  • delving into panel discussions with young people of faith.

This is a fantastic opportunity for faith and environmental groups to come together to expand their network of contacts.

The event is free, you need to register to attend:
