 Faith Communities = Neighbourhood Resilience Hubs

FCG: Greening Sacred Spaces is working to enhance the capacity of our communities, to better withstand the negative impacts of climate-induced extreme weather events (ex. heat, storms, flooding) by identifying, training, and mobilizing neighborhood faith groups to act as local resilience hubs.

Our project on the potential of faith communities to act as critical neighbourhood-level service hubs when responding to climate-induced extreme weather events was featured on CBC Radio Toronto's "Here and Now" and "Metro Morning" programs.

Climate Action and Fossil Fuel Divestment

Our March 1 annual forum, “Divestment or What?” was the first interfaith forum of its kind to engage Canada’s faith sector in a discussion of our moral obligations to help shape a clean energy future.

In the next several months, Faith & the Common Good will establish a Canadian Interfaith Divestment Network to keep the conversations going. In the interim, we would like to share some video clips from the divestment discussions at our annual forum and links to more information and media about this emerging and important issue.
