Funded by ARC and the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) through the Africa Biodiversity Collaborative Group (USAID), the event was organised by the Uganda Faiths Network for Environmental Action (UFNEA),and was designed to introduce faith-based ESD to faith groups in Uganda, looking at both formal and informal education.
The guest of honour, Minister of State for Environment Hon. Flavia Nabugere Munaaba
shared an encouraging message affirming the role of faith groups in promoting the national agenda around ESD. Groups from Rwanda, Tanzania, Kenya and Ghana added an international perspective.
The feedback from participants was excellent, with many departing inspired to either start or increase their activities on faith-based ESD.
