Applications open for WCC’s 1st Africa Eco-School

The first ever World Council of Churches (WCC) Eco-School on Water, Food and Climate Justice will be held 24 July to 3 August in Malawi, Africa, and applications are now open with a deadline of 31 May.

The Eco-School, coordinated by the WCC Ecumenical Water Network and Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance, will bring together about 20 young people ages 18-30 from Africa.

Participants will explore the deep nexus between water, food and climate change, and how it impacts the livelihoods and very survival of so many people. Climate change directly impacts ecosystems, agriculture, fishing, food security and water access.

The Eco-School will be an opportunity to study the local, regional, and international manifestations of climate change, then examine the challenges from a perspective of faith and ethics, and search together for possible ecumenical responses.
