Youth Interfaith Leaders Fellowship on Climate Change (Fully Funded) – 2022

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.
