Interfaith week event to call for action on climate change

Merseyside residents, of all faiths and beliefs, are invited to take part in Faiths4Change's Interfaith Week event, 'World Faiths, Climate Change, & Community Influence'. 

On Tuesday 14th of November, the Mersey Maritime hub will play host to an active day of knowledge sharing and planning around faith and the environment. The day will be opened by Professor Peter Scott of the University of Manchester. The event will bring together people of all faiths to engage in dialogue and actions around climate change through facilitated workshops and discussions.

Peter Owen, Chief Executive at Energy Projects Plus, says of the event “Climate change affects everyone, and needs both individual and community action. We will be sharing our knowledge in energy related issues and are keen to learn from other participants and harness the opportunities interfaith community partnerships can offer.” Stephen Sykes, Principal Consultant at Emansys adds “I think it is really important that people understand the impact and implications of climate change for people and life on the planet.  Also, how by playing their part, making small changes in their daily lives and routines they can be part of the solution”
