In 2017 Faiths Forum for London launched its Interfaith Tree Planting project which aims to promote community spirit, develop interfaith relations and make London greener funded by the Mayor of London.
It has been one of the most successful projects that Faiths Forum For London and The Mayor Of London have collaborated on. With an estimate of over 250 trees already planted which has made London Greener, helped tackle the climate crisis and also brought people of different faiths and background together.
At a time when the eye of the world is focused on London in particular, it is very heartwarming to see when it comes to good projects, people of all religions and none come together to prove London is united and will continue being so.
Trees have different meanings to different people from different faiths and none and this great opportunity lets people come together, learn more about one-another, and play a role in the plantation, and subsequent long-term care of the trees.
Evidence and research suggests that Tree planting ‘has mind-blowing potential’ to tackle climate crisis, as the trees grow, they absorb and store the carbon dioxide emissions that are driving global warming.
Now in our 3rd year, we are looking for even more organisations to join the thousands who have already participated. There are opportunities for everyone to get involved and we guarantee you will not regret it.
If you run a London organisation that wants to get involved please email ali@faithsforum4london.
