Anglican Communion Environmental Network

A Network for those who care for God’s creation

Anglicans and Episcopalians worldwide have long been concerned with environmental issues. From extreme weather to food shortages all of us are affected. Guided by the fifth Mark of Mission members of the Anglican Communion Environment Network strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the earth.

“Prophetic Indigenous Voices on the Planetary Crisis” Advent webinars

Throughout Advent, the Anglican Indigenous Network and Anglican Communion Environmental Network are offering a series of four weekly webinars, bringing perspectives from Indigenous communities across the Communion on the planetary environmental emergency. Contributions will come from Aotearoa and Polynesia (30 November), Amazonia (7 December), Africa (14 December) and the Arctic (21 December).

Described as “a lament in the present and a vision for living well”, the sessions will look at both the current reality facing communities and draw on Indigenous wisdom for shaping a prophetic vision of a better future.

Each week, a 45-minute video from one of the regions will be presented, followed by discussion.
