No Misreading the Signs of Times. Open letter to the World Council of Churches
The Open letter to the global ecumenical community on the “Wuppertal Declaration from Kairos Europa states that the root causes of the crises were concealed in the Wuppertal Declaration, disregarding the systemic character of the very crisis of our capitalist civilization. It asks for the indispensable reorientation of the World Council of Churches towards a determined engagement with the crises of survival of humankind and creation, and their causes. A “Decade for the Healing of Creation” could provide the framework in view of the dramatic signs of the times.
Kairos Europa is a decentralised network of justice, peace and creation initiatives working in collaboration with ecumenical networks, churches, social movements, trade unions and non-governmental organisations both in and outside Europe, for a more just and tolerant society. It provides a platform on the European level for a more holistic approach at addressing the injustice, the violence, the destruction of creation and the general decay of society adopting a non-single issue perception and favouring a dual strategy of local and global action, with a decentralised and bottom-up approach.
