Global Challenges in the Anthropocene – Churches are rising for a culture of sustainability

Humanity is facing crossroads. Human interference into the planetary system has become a threat to life on earth and we introduced a new age: the anthropocene. Their characteristics are violations of the planetary boundaries – be it human-made climate change or loss of biodiversity. We need a transition of economies and life styles towards a culture of sustainability. Churches can contribute towards a systemic social ecological transformation in a new way.
