“Green reformation” consultation renews commitment to care for creation

Over 30 seasoned theological educators, emerging theologians and researchers, church ministers and practitioners engaged in grassroots adult education gathered at the Ecumenical Institute Bossey, near Geneva, Switzerland, 12-15 May, to reflect on eco-theology and theological Education.

“Your commitment to eco-theology as a theme for ecumenical theological education is very important for the way we want to engage the churches in the conversations at the next assembly in Karlsruhe and beyond”, said the general secretary of the World Council of Churches (WCC), Rev. Dr Olav Fykse Tveit, as he greeted the Group.

Participants of the consultation came from the Pacific, Africa, Asia, Latin America, North America and Europe to discuss the specific contribution of indigenous traditions to the understanding of human relations with other elements of creation and how this connectedness with all creation shapes a new approach in eco-theology.
