Climate Change in Asia: Towards a New Creation

 

 

Some 55 participants from 16 Episcopal Conferences and 2 Associate Members in Asia met in Bangkok on 19-20th October 2011 to discuss Church Response to the challenge of climate change in Asia.

International experts assisted on the urgency of this issue in the context of the Church’s commitment to protect the integrity of God’s Creation in Asia and leave a meaningful legacy for future generations. One significant decision was to create a Desk in the Central Secretariat of FABC with a competent person to follow up on this urgent issue. The seminar was financially supported by the German Catholic Bishops’ Organization for Development Cooperation (MISEREOR). 261011
