Episode 7: Faith and Climate

In this episode we explore what faith communities bring to climate campaigning and action. With discussions ranging across Sikh, Muslim, Baháʼí, Christian and Jewish faith perspectives, this podcast explores commonalities, shared perspectives and the motivations of our contributors. Tami, Kat and Manish invite Ravinder Nijjar chair of UK women of Faith Network, Linsay Taylor of Muslim Engagement and Development and chair of Interfaith Scotland, and Maureen, three women from three different faith traditions to the virtual studio. I hope you enjoy the wide ranging, fascinating, personal and meaningful discussions as a listener as much as we enjoyed making this podcast.
