FFOP hosted its fourth workshop in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The two-day event was a first of its kind for the country, bringing together representatives of diverse faith groups and successfully training over 90 participants from government, academia, civil society, and a number of faith-based organizations. This included over 50 faith leaders that represented the four most followed religions in the country: Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Christianity.
Equipping Faith Leaders for Climate Action
The workshop was organized in collaboration with prominent local organizations and FFOP partners. This included event support, speakers, and trainers from:
Sajida Foundation, Bangladesh Youth Environmental Initiative (BYEI), International Centre for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD), Dhaka University, and the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change.
Through discussions and interactive sessions, the participants not only built a trusted network of empowered faith leaders but also enhanced their knowledge and skills in faith-driven climate action. The gathering represented Bangladesh’s diverse demographics and active participation of women (in line with our commitment to UN SDG 5). The event was held at the BRAC Center and CCDB Climate Technology Park, Dhaka.
