8 Days to Help Creation - Call for Action
Sunday 8 November 0.00 – 0.00 Sunday 15 November
A very successful Interfaith prayer service took place via Zoom on Thursday 15th October 2020, in which people from different faiths gave a brief presentation from their faith perspective and Holy Scriptures on Creation.
For National Inter Faith week, it was agreed that we would encourage our communities to get involved, and the following suggestions [not exhaustive) were made:
• Collecting litter
• Reduce our personal plastic use [where plastic can’t be avoided there are a lot of possibilities for local recycling (TerraCycle)]
• Saving water
• Planting a tree
• Saving energy
• Reducing meat consumption
• Walking or cycling instead of using a vehicle or public transport
• Creating green space
• Spend some time outdoors, appreciating nature.
Each person would decide what they would like to do for a day, some days or all eight days of Inter Faith Week, from the above, and it was proposed that then they might like to post on social media what they have done. The hope is that we could widely advertise this in our faith communities but also advertise it in the local Press and local Council.

|Important information||More long-term, we wanted to help joining people up and there was discussion about linking up with other local conservation, environmental action groups and other groups and people who share the same concerns for the planet. People of Faith and those with no-faith must all take action now!
It was agreed that we would look into promoting and working with organisations such as, TerraCycle to recycle as much as possible.
