Keynote speech at Being “Holy common”, Oslo, Norway, October 2018

Some 500 youth workers and leaders from churches all over Norway gathered outside Oslo in October, for a youth and faith conference to learn and to share knowledge and visions on Christian youth work. WCC general secretary Rev. Dr Olav Fykse Tveit was one of the keynote speakers elaborating on that subject. He sees “holy” and “common” as two very different things which at the same time are closely related.

WCC general secretary statement on the report of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change - 12 October 2018

The recently released report of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change on the impacts of global warming of 1.5 degrees Celsius is more than a wake-up call for all of us. It is an alarm bell of a disaster going on. Our home, the Earth, God’s gift of creation, is endangered by the unlimited extraction of natural resources that is clearly disrupting the life-giving systems of our planet.
