Summary:

This report provides top-line conclusions about language about climate change that could mobilise activity across the world's 5 main faith groups: Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jewish and Muslim.

Highlights:

Our Voices (a campaign of GreenFaith and the Conservation Foundation) commissioned the UK's Climate Outreach & Information Network (COIN) to develop and test language around climate change that could mobilise activity across the world's 5 main faith groups: Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jewish and Muslim. COIN developed trial narratives and identified key framing language from 3 sources: interfaith statements on climate change, interviews with faith experts, and COIN's extensive experience developing climate change communications for distinct audiences. These trial narratives were then tested in narrative workshops, one per faith. Each workshop contained 10 to 20 participants, with a balance of gender, age and country of origin. Additional feedback was gathered through an online survey. The report provides top-line conclusions.
