Anglican Communion Environmental Network

Anglican Communion Environmental Network - Home Page

"In many parts of the world local Anglican Churches have given leadership:

* by being advocates for responsible environmental stewardship
* by providing support & leadership to local initiatives to protect the environment
* by seeking to educate Anglicans as individuals and as communities to become better stewards of creation.

In 1998 the bishops gathered at Lambeth expressed their concern that efforts to address such issues be given greater visibility and be better coordinated across the Anglican Communion. The Network is an attempt to do just that. After some initial work following ACC-11 in Dundee (1999), the Network received recognition as an official network of the Anglican Communion at ACC-12 in Hong Kong (2002)."
