Dry river bed seen from bridge.

A bridge near San Francisco Libre in central Nicaragua, that no water has passed under for months. In wide areas across El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua, harvests have been completely destroyed by the drought causing enormous hardship for many thousands of poor subsistence farming families.

This event will encourage participating organisations—faith communities as well as other constituencies—to address these pressing ecological concerns and take urgent action,  including actions addressing economic justice issues that are intrinsically connected with eco-justice.

Participants will endeavor to understand the urgency of climate change and the water crisis through a theological and ethical lens. Speakers hope to inspire the audience  by sharing good practices and pledging to take action for  eco-justice by walking the talk.”

Together, they will come up with a road map for creation justice and enabling churches' engagement with eco-justice.
