A seminar at the Ecumenical Institute of Bossey, Switzerland has gathered diverse reflections on eco-theology, care for the creation and climate change, and how to build a sustainable world. The contributors included Christian theologians and activists as well as youth.
Organised by the World Council of Churches (WCC) programme Care for Creation and Climate Justice and the Ecumenical Institute of Bossey, the seminar was held 14 to 17 May. More than thirty international participants came together to address the theme ‘Eco-theology: caring for creation today and building a sustainable world for tomorrow’.
A two-day meeting of the working group on climate change followed the seminar, focusing on preparations for the WCC’s upcoming assembly and advocacy at the United Nations forums. The WCC 10th Assembly is set to take place in Busan, Republic of Korea, 30 October to 8 November, under the theme ‘God of life, lead us to justice and peace’.
