A multi-faith conference will be held on Sunday to give people of different religions the chance to learn about issues concerning climate change.
The conference has been organised by the Environment Agency to allow faith groups to respond to the imposing threat of global warming through their spirituality.
A declaration on climate change will be drawn up in conclusion to the discussion.
Rob Lunt, the Environment Agency's external relations officer, said: "We need people to understand that climate change is happening in Birmingham. It will affect all of us, but there are things we can each do to help reduce our personal contribution to climate change.
"We aim to inform faith groups of the differences that can be achieved from small changes that everyone can make. We also want to discuss to the bigger changes, such as national legislation that will reduce the effects of climate change."
There is evidence that the climate in the Midlands is already changing. Five of the ten warmest years of the 20th Century occurred in the 1990s, annual mean temperatures over central England increased by 0.6?C between 1901 and 1998 and annual rainfall totals have increased by three per cent since the 1930s.
Maud Grainger, of Friends of the Earth Birmingham, said: "We all need to start taking the threat of climate change seriously, it should not be viewed as a problem for the future but something we need to tackle now." The conference will take place at Birmingham City Council house between 12.30pm and 6pm.
