"Archbishop Thabo Makgoba, primate of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa, has invited 20 Anglican Communion bishops to join him in Cape Town [South Africa] in February 2015 in a 'process of discussion and discernment' about what churches can do about change and ecological degradation. 'Our goal will be to develop a Communion-wide strategic plan that meets the challenges ahead and builds confidence in God's future', Makgoba said". "National Indigenous Anglican Bishop Mark MacDonald and the diocese of Edmonton's Bishop Jane Alexander have been invited to represent the Anglican Church of Canada. Canada's the Rev. Canon Ken Gray, secretary to the Anglican Communion Environmental Network, said this is the first time that bishops are gathering specifically to discuss environmental issues, 'with the intention of speaking collectively to the Communion worldwide'."
