About the Fellowship

The fellowship is a fully funded, week-long residential programme at Duke University for the next generation of faith leaders. This is an invaluable opportunity for young climate conscious individuals from all faiths and walks of life to become a part of a global network of religious actors engaged in climate action.

Through expert lectures, interactive sessions, policy dialogues, and vocational training, fellows will explore various themes and tap into transferable skills to curate impactful faith-based climate action projects for their respective communities. Distinguished specialists will deliver the curriculum in the field of theology, climate change, policy, media, and sustainable development.
