What's the context?
2015: Globethics.net, the World Council of Churches, Bread for the World and the United Evangelical Mission conducted a global survey on activities of churches on the challenges and the solutions around Ecotheology, Climate Justice and Food Security issues from theological education, ecumenical formation and Christian leadership development perspectives.
March 2016: all those involved in the survey met at the Volos Academy in Greece for a follow-up consultation on ‘Resources and Best Practice Models for Ecotheology, Climate Justice and Food Security'. Participants approved a ‘Manifesto for the Ecological Reformation of Christianity' in which they ask churches to work together and to be actively involved in initiatives to respond to environmental challenges.
September 2016: The final report is now published, available online and in print. In parallel, we will also launch the EcoTheology online collection with more than 17,000 resources.
