Our office in Bonn

Located strategically in the German UN city of Bonn, the location of our Bonn office offers us ideal working conditions. Our premises consist of a representative reception area, a large conference room and our offices. We look forward to every visit - come and have a look.

Why we exist

The Sustainable Development Goals / 2030 Agenda cannot be achieved without engaging religious organizations and communities. The United Nations and national governments have recognized this and have created various initiatives to cooperate with religious actors. The WEA will connect with the United Nations, governments and other (religious and faith-based) non-governmental organizations in order to contribute to the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.

A specific task force on the environment, the WEA Creation Care Task Force (CCTF) works to equip evangelicals to care for creation and raises awareness on how to deal responsibly with the environment. The Task Force has produced valuable resources and built a wide network of partnerships. Using the new WEASC as a platform, the CCTF will engage with international organizations, governments and like-minded NGOs to help connect and leverage the capacities of evangelical creation care organizations for greater impact at national and global levels.

The Oikos Network connects Christians around the world who are taking action to tackle the environmental crisis. We create online communities to restore, reinvigorate and reinspire Christian climate activists.
Join us at http://oikos-network.org

Our Co-Director @mkboehning meets Rev. Dr. Peter Pavlovic from @ceceurope in Brussels. CEC and WEASC are looking for potential fields of cooperation in creation care and plan a joint launch event of an exciting new publication.

We invited a delegation of pastors to visit @SDGaction in Bonn as part of #SeasonOfCreation. The visit was an opportunity for the pastors to learn about the Sustainable Development Goals and to engage with the UN from a practical congregational perspective. #Act4SDGs
