Ecotheology conference in Greece and manifesto
An important part of the Volos consultations was the presentation of the "Global Survey on Ecotheology, Climate Justice and Food Security" (ETCF). The main object of this survey was to collect and to map resources, best practice models, materials and examples on the issue. A total of 310 respondents from a wide range of faith based organisations, non-governmental organisations, churches and related organisations from different religions and faiths shared their experiences and ideas to fight climate change and the to address complex social and justice related issues affecting human beings worldwide. It is significant that people from all continents and from more than 60 countries took part in the survey. The survey provides a rich source of best practice models, examples and ideas of how people deal with the challenge related to ETCF in a broad variety of different contexts. The survey, which took place over the course of a whole year, also gives a view of how some organisations deal with ETCF issues and of their best practice models.
An online working group on "Resources and Best Practice Models on Ecotheology, Climate Justice and Food Security", hosted by Globethics.net, has been launched.
The survey report and the conference speeches are due to be published through Globethics.net publications in the summer of 2016.
