- Leave a positive footprint
What we do
We foster DIALOGUE among pilgrim cities, faith communities and environmental organizations
SHARE & LEARN
We organize conferences, seminars and workshops in which representatives of the cities and the faith communities MEET, SHARE and LEARN from each other
We provide INFORMATION about the principles of sustainable travel, green faith sources, environment and nature, the Pilgrim Footprint
AROUND THE WORLD
We work in JERUSALEM and throughout the HOLY LAND, while seeking partnerships AROUND THE WORLD
“The idea is at once both grand and simple, since while there is nothing new in pilgrimage, the idea of a global pilgrim partnership is an entirely new concept, which sets goals for urban sustainability and economic growth on the one hand, and for interfaith dialogue on the other” (Naomi Tsur).
