Footsteps provides encouragement to those directly involved at place of worship, faith community and city level.  Being part of the Birmingham Council of Faiths, representing the faith communities on the Birmingham climate emergency taskforce and having the support of the Birmingham Faith Leaders’ Group means that Footsteps can open many doors across the city.   In addition, Footsteps connects with individual places of worship and faith communities’ own environmental groups and champions.   

During 2021 a Footsteps focus will be encouraging individuals and communities to prepare for the Glasgow Climate Summit (COP26).

Footsteps events provide opportunities to make connections that might otherwise might not exist, bringing different groups together.
