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, they’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.
- The fellowship seeks to attract 25 individuals, between the ages of 20 to 35. They hope to maintain an inclusive cohort with representation from diverse backgrounds. A diverse representation of major faiths, students of eco-theology, environmental and community activists, early career professionals eager to deepen their knowledge of faith and environmental protection, members of FBOs and NGOs working in the field of climate change and ecology are all welcomed.
Participants entering the program should meet the following eligibility criteria
- Have acquired or currently enrolled in an undergraduate degree program
