Faith For Our Planet, in collaboration with Duke University’s prestigious Divinity School, has launched an exciting new program for climate conscious youth leaders from around the world. Whether you are a religious leader, a climate activist, an early career professional in a faith-based organization or a recent graduate who’s just starting out – as long as you’re eager to learn how to mobilize faith communities to combat climate change, we’ve got you covered.
A cohort of 25 to 30 youth leaders and agents of change will be given a once in a lifetime opportunity to expand their networks and develop their skills to deliver an impactful faith-based climate action project.
On this journey, they will be trained by distinguished specialists in the field of religious studies, climate change, policy, media, and sustainable development who will help them acquire knowledge and skills in eco-theology, systems thinking, community mobilization, advocacy and more!
Please note that although our application deadline is November 10th 2022, FFOP will review applications on a rolling basis, and therefore we may close applications in advance. With only 25 to 30 spaces available, we advise all interested parties to apply at the earliest opportunity.
As a part the program, our fellows will benefit from knowledge of:
- World religions and the environment
- Eco-theology: the theological study of relationship between religion and the environment
- Systems thinking: Identifying the political and economic paradigms of climate change
- Project planning and community mobilization
- Strategic communications
- Advocacy and community outreach
- Upon completion of the program, our Fellows will join the ranks of the FFOP Fellowship Alumni Association, providing them with various opportunities to be part of FFOP’s regional events, as well as climate and interfaith campaigns.
- All travel, visa, accommodation, and subsistence costs will be provided by Faith For Our Planet.
