Faith & Values


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

  • Provide a moral compass
  • Emphasise care for the Earth
  • Involve love and justice for all humanity
  • Include hope for a better future

and underpin Footsteps’ work including Birmingham’s Climate Emergency

In Birmingham members of faith communities and others share their values, are inspired to take action both in their own lives, their places of worship and in the wider communities and world in which they live and work.
