Representatives of faith communities in Southwark are warmly invited to join this conference organised by local faith leaders and council officers.
Southwark is proudly home to several hundred diverse faith organisations. Caring for people and the environment is central to the life of our faith communities, and many are already doing what they can to help make the borough greener, safer and fairer for all.
This conference is an opportunity for faith leaders to:
- Take part in discussions sharing your thoughts and ideas on the challenges and opportunities presented by climate change and the cost-of-living crisis
- Visit stalls sharing information on steps faith communities are taking to go green, address the cost of living and promote community well-being
- Get equipped with useful resources to share with people in your organisation and neighbourhood
- Connect and build relationships with other faith communities
Hot food and drink will be provided. Quiet space is available for prayers.
NB: Please note the possibility of this in person conference reverting to an online MS Team format due to public health considerations. Should that be the case you will be informed a week before conference.
