This fall the fifth gathering of the initiative Faith in Green, in Dutch ‘Geloven in Groen’, will take place in The Hague. Muslims, Hindus and Christians gather around their common beliefs of taking care for and protecting the earth and inspire and connect to take (joint) action to make their faith community more sustainable. Initiatives of Change Netherlands (IofC) coordinates and facilitates the initiative that kicked-off in August one year ago.
