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.

Project 4F

People of faith want to get started on the journey to a low carbon future. There are obstacles to be overcome, but now help is at hand. Through Project 4F, we are working with partner organisations to give advice and help.

Just Transition

Many of Footsteps’ activities involve working through places of worship and faith communities in Birmingham to help achieve a just transition to a low carbon future and a sustainable world.

Statements & Reports

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