The World Council of Churches (WCC) has postponed its Eco School in North America until 2023, when it will be held in Europe. To accommodate participants from North America, a special event will be conducted in the region. Details about the event and the venue will be announced soon.
The WCC Eco School program, which was established in 2017, has been designed to provide young people with a comprehensive understanding of various issues related to climate change, the water crisis, and food insecurity. The program’s first three years have been successful in Asia, Africa, and Latin America.
The WCC Ecumenical Water Network is working on a wider program with other groups such as the Health and Healing Network and the Eco Advocacy Alliance. The Eco School is a collaboration between the World Council of Churches, Thrivent Charitable Impact, and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
The objective of these training programs is to expose the link between climate change, water, and food security and to build the capacities of young people to address these issues in a holistic manner. The training is also focused on the impacts of these issues on Indigenous people and health.
Details about the event and the venue will be announced soon.
