EUROPEAN CHRISTIAN ENVIRONMENTAL NETWORK

earth

ECEN is a church network promoting co-operation in caring for creation.

Ecological threats transcend national and confessional boundaries. The aim of the ECEN is to share information, experiences in environmental work among widely varied Christian traditions and to encourage a united witness in caring for God's creation. ECEN is the main working instrument of the Conference of European Churches for addressing the need for environmental engagement and responding to climate change.
