Dear God...

Footsteps
Small Footsteps 2017
Our Progress:

In 2016 a five day summer school attended by 30 youngsters aged 8 - 14 was held in five different places of worship: a Mosque, Sikh temple, Christian church, Buddhist centre and Jewish synagogue.

Following this Small Footsteps 2017 was a five day multi-faith environmental summer school for young people aged 11 – 14.   Young people were introduced to the environment through practical activities related to food and food waste, recycling, water, trees, energy, the ecological cycle of life and finally how these all relate to the dangers of climate change.   Woven into these practical activities were connections with the environment and natural world made by different faiths. This summer school was held at a single location in the grounds of Fircroft College in Selly Oak.  In both cases young people met at the Birmingham Central Mosque and were taken by bus to different locations. 
 
Since August 2017 Small Footsteps has been consolidating the successes and lessons from both summer schools and supporting other groups to run activities.  The Small Footsteps team is working on a web site and resource package that will help other groups to both deliver individual activities as well as more ambitious five day summer schools.  See our website for progress or email us.
