Abstract

Conference report on research into the state of Christian engagement with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) (Focus on the UK). Reports on interviews with stakeholders and quantitative research using page counts on church web domains. Findings include low levels of engagement by UK churches with the SDGs. Much higher engagement by international church bodies and Faith-based Development Organisations. A comparison with other organisations shows some fossil fuel companies with higher SDG page counts than most churches. Future research should include analysis of actual activity by churches not just that reported using the SDG language.
