Our Work

Footsteps works on six key themes, plus an annual focus theme

Faith & Values

The world’s major faith traditions share values that underpin their action on climate change.


Footsteps provides spaces where people can share faith perspectives on the environment and take ideas back into their own communities and places of worship.

Earth Care

Many faith traditions share the belief that we have a collective responsibility to care for the earth and its people.


Footsteps provides encouragement to those directly involved at place of worship, faith community and city level.

Climate Emergency

Across the world, leaders of both faith communities and cities recognise that we face a crisis and are speaking out.

Young People

Footsteps endeavours to involve young people in its work and activities, not least because young people will be the generation most affected by, but which has done least to cause, climate change.

Faith Community Map

The BCF Footsteps Birmingham Faith Community map contains information about Birmingham’s 800+ places of worship and faith-based organisations.

Saving Energy

Helping Birmingham’s faith communities move to a low carbon future in practical and locally based ways are important areas of Footsteps’ ongoing work.

Statements & Reports

Footsteps has written letters to leaders, made statements and published reports on key climate issues over the past five years.
