ECEN workshop at General Assembly of CEC, Novi Sad

Witness to Climate Change and efforts for sustainable future

Continuing climate change is becoming an increasing urgency and one of the key challenges of the 21st century. The outcomes of the Paris climate conference in 2015 offer a frame for global efforts to address the issue in a concerted way and through political efforts of governments throughout the globe. Countries in Europe and especially the European Union are important players in these efforts. Growing number of churches, ecumenical organisations and individual Christians contribute to addressing climate change through their work in advocacy, dialogue with political decision makers and through a great number of projects on national, regional and local levels. The hearing will offer the space for rising awareness, intensive sharing and discussion leading to strengthening of a joint churches’ voice and visibility of churches’ action in addressing climate change.
