Are you a Birmingham church, mosque, temple, synagogue, gurdwara or other place of worship that cares about climate change?  Would you like to raise awareness of its causes and effects in your faith?

Footsteps can help you with this by offering resources, speakers, events and other support and contacts.

We also need your help to arrange appealing events for people of all ages and faiths – can you help us by providing a channel of communication and telling us what works well?

We would love to hear from you from you about what you are doing and how Footsteps might be able to help. 

Join In with your own local community
