Convening in-person in New York, the event is open to young people under 30 years of age from the North America region only. 

The deadline for applications is 10 November 2022.

Participants will explore the ways in which the North America region has the ability and resilience to tackle climate change. They will also discuss how the political will to do so fluctuates under various administrations.

Can North America lead the world in its endeavour to address climate change and its impacts on water, food, health, and Indigenous people? The Eco-School will help answer that crucial question.

The Eco-School is organised by the WCC Ecumenical Water Network in collaboration with various WCC programmes including the Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance, Economic and Ecological Justice, Youth Engagement in the ecumenical movement, Health and Healing and Ecumenical Indigenous Peoples Network (Mission from the Margins).

The WCC Eco-School is an ongoing partnership between WCC, Thrivent Charitable Impact & Investing, and Evangelical Lutheran Church of America.
