A european conference about the role churches can play in building sustainable societies locally and nationally.

The Church of Norway and the European Christian Environmental Network (ECEN) invite you to learn how churches can be agents of change for a more sustainable society; to respond to the Paris climate agreement and the UN sustainable
development goals.

  • We will investigate what has happened and what is being done now in churches, both in Oslo and all over Europe.
  • We will look at the challenging situation we face and the biblical rationale for taking action to change it. You will have the opportunity to learn about the situation in Norway and particularly in Oslo.

Along with presentations, you will be able to meet local communities, visit projects and experience the sights, the smells and the sounds of Oslo. You may also experience a hike in the nearby forest, a boat-trip in the Oslo fjord, or a visit to the amazing Hope Cathedral project in nearby Fredrikstad.
