 Fossil Free Faith Youth Launch

Fossil Free Faith has included and been led by young voices since the beginning. Our relationships with young people aren’t a side-project of what we do. They are at the centre.

Like the larger FFF network, our youth initiative is a network of young leaders engaging one another and their faith institutions about climate justice, fossil fuel divestment / reinvestment, and the role of bold faith in strengthening our shared future.

This project has grown out of numerous sparks of intergenerational conversation about what role interfaith networks can play in supporting climate justice work, and how youth leadership can be strengthened and amplified within faith-based and interfaith spaces.

The pilot project of this youth network is being supported by the Inspirit Foundation. Watch their page for more information: www.fossilfreefaith.ca/youth/ or follow www.facebook.com/FossilFreeFaith

The Green Rule: A World Interfaith Harmony Week Hike

February 8, 2:00 - 4:00, Rouge Park, Toronto

An Afternoon Hike Through Rouge National Urban Park

https://www.facebook.com/events/836792043079091/

This hike through Rouge Valley Urban Park was inspired by the Green Rule' poster created by Faith & the Common Good to demonstrate that each religion and spiritual philosophy has a long-standing tradition of ecological stewardship. During this hike, your guide Michelle Singh will share the Rules as we walk and reflect on our own deep connection with nature. 'Do unto the Earth as you would have it do unto you.'

Hosted by World Interfaith Harmony Week, Toronto www.interfaithtoronto.ca

The good, the bad and the green

"When parishioners enter Christ Church Cathedral through the great west doors, those who like heat should sit on the left side of the building, and those who don’t mind a cooler service should sit on the right side."
