Young Europeans: We stand for sustainability and Eco-justice!

trees
Environment and sustainable development have been among the mostly debated issues on the level of the international politics, within the civil society, as well as the Churches. Regular high level political meetings take place to negotiate the contribution of global players to reduction of the harmful effects of the mankind to the environment, through emission cuts, renewable energy and legislative mechanisms, that would support sustainable development.
 
The EU is among the major players in the global climate negotiations. Nevertheless, great discrepancies between different components of eco-justice can be witnessed in Europe – there is pollution, extreme poverty, injustice and isolation. Sustainability is not yet at an affordable price for many Europeans. What can young Europeans do about it?
 
EYCE, together with other ecumenical partners – the Secretariat of COMECE, the Church and Society Commission of CEC, Don Bosco International, Evangelical Church in Germany, Brussels office, the Federation of Protestant Youth in Germany and Rete Juventutis – is organising an Evening Debate on contribution of young people to sustainability and eco-justice.
 
The event will take place on Tuesday, 9 September 2014, 18h30 at the premises of the Secretariat of COMECE, Square de Meeûs 19, 1050 Brussels.
 
Interpretation will be provided in English & German.
 
Registration is possible here.
 
If you are around Brussels that time, we look forward to welcoming you!
