The WWF Nedbank Green Trust is funding a ground-breaking project on environmental eco-justice in partnership with the Southern African Faith Communities' Environment Institute (SAFCEI), the Anglican Church of Southern Africa (ACSA) and a Muslim community represented by the leadership of the Claremont Main Road Mosque (CMRM).
The WWF Nedbank Green Trust recognises that the faith community is a strong constituency to engage with concerning environmental issues, and this partnership aims to build leadership capacity and develop environmental training resources for faith communities.
Through the partnership with the Southern African Faith Communities' Environment Institute, the Trust seeks to increase engagement with multi-faith communities on environmental awareness and conservation issues across Southern Africa.
The initiative aims to build leadership capacity and develop environmental training resources.
The programme is currently in its pilot phase, where the Trust has engaged the Anglican and Muslim communities, in developing leadership within faith communities to incorporate environmental conservation efforts and environmental outreach programmes in faith and community projects, in order to get more communities to reflect on eco-consciousness and environmental conservation.
The Trust seeks to make the programme available to more faith communities, including other Christian denominations and the wider Muslim community.
