On the occasion of the World Environment Day and to strengthen engaging with faith-based organizations and faith leaders in India, UNEP’s India Country Office is launching its Faith for Earth Strategy and Action Plan.

India is a multicultural and multifaith country. Religion and culture form the main source of much of the moral laws and ethos In India. They color the world view held by most Indians. Aside from ritualistic mandates of disparate religion and indigenous cultural traditions in India, the common denominator for most of them is the “interconnectedness of religious and environmental concern” (Assisi Declaration et al.)

India’s spiritual heritage places premium on the need to preserve and protect nature and sustainable consumption. Should the established religions and indigenous culture in India be mobilized for the cause of environment, it would be easier for the environment protection movement to achieve its goal of a green and a sustainable future. The Faith for Earth Initiative gives a great platform for UNEP- ICO to work with India specific FBO’s
