WCC will hold its annual Ecumenical Continuing Formation (ECF) on young people with a
focus on Transformative Masculinity and Femininity in the Pacific region. The Pacific Council of Churches (PCC) has
identified the following concerns among young people in the region: climate justice, mental health, unemployment,
and gender-based violence. In-line with the WCC pilgrimage of justice and peace theme for its 2020 Pacific regional
focus of ‘Climate Justice and Nuclear Disarmament’, the ECF has a specific emphasis on the impacts of climate change
on mental health, in relation to the overall theme. This joint event plans to engage 30 young people from the Pacific
and around the world to go deeper on the topic of transformative masculinity and femininity in the Pacific.
The youth participants are expected to produce a Call to Action statement from the seminar, which will be
shared within and outside the WCC network.
