FWCC joins Multi-Faith ‘Living the Change’ sustainable living initiative, representing Quakers worldwide

Living the Change logoFWCC is working in partnership with a global community of religious and spiritual institutions including Interfaith, Baha’i, Buddhist, Catholic, Evangelical, Protestant, Hindu, Jewish and Muslim networks, and sustainable consumption experts, to champion sustainable living. ‘Living the Change’ was initiated at the UN Climate Conference in 2017 by the US-based multi-faith organisation, GreenFaith.

As people of faith, many Quakers are committing to making changes in our own lives. We invite you to think about the individual choices you can make to reduce your impact on the environment, and how you can become part of the solution in three high-impact areas: transportation, home energy use, and diet.
