Notes
"In August [2014], 19 Muslim, Jewish and Christian students from 12 different countries were hosted by the WCC's [World Council of Churches] Ecumenical Institute in Bossey, Switzerland, on an interfaith summer course on interreligious issues and climate change. The young person representing the Anglican Communion on the course was the Church of Ceylon's Mark Edwards". "Sri Lanka is one of the most beautiful places on earth, but it is marred by, among other things, religious violence and, increasingly, the impact of climate change. Not an uncommon story in many countries around the globe, but one that the World Council of Churches (WCC) has been trying to change -- through young people". "The fact that the faiths represented in Bossey were Abrahamic in origin gave the attendees a common base from which to discuss the protection of creation". "One main outcome of the two weeks together included a joint statement on climate change to be presented at the Interfaith Summit on Climate Change in New York in September [21-22, 2014]. Another was a commitment by the attendees to take practical action to raise awareness of the problems and solutions of climate change back home".
