Crisis and Commitment: Final Report, Lima Statement and Action Plan of the Anglican Communion Environmental Network Meeting in Lima, Peru, 4 to 10 August 2011

front_coverCreation is in crisis. This was the conclusion of ACEN's meeting in Lima, Peru, in August 2011, where participants from around the Communion reported accelerating impacts from human-induced climate change and environmental degradation in their regions and took the opportunity to experience firsthand some of the environmental challenges faced by the people of Peru. Their report describes the extent of the global crisis together with examples of environmental mitigation, 'greening' and good practice in our churches and communities. The report includes theological reflection and urges Anglicans everywhere to seek environmental justice and to challenge and transform individuals and systems that spoil the earth, affect local communities adversely, and refuse to imagine a different kind of global community. It also sets out ACEN's own commitments and action plan as the Network seeks to support Anglicans in responding to the crisis.
