As a service to Member Churches wishing to promote an active, democratic and responsible participation in European Affairs, the CEC-CSC Working Group on Education produced a set of postcards portraying a vision of Europe as it could be and linking its preoccupations and concerns directly to the Christian ethos.
The 2014 European elections are over and gone but the task of enlivening democracy and encouraging everyone, especially young people, to play their part is still very important. This collection of eight cards is being brought to the attention of the churches to make them more aware of European questions, especially in the area of democratic participation in society. The cards are intended for all people and all groups which share our vision. Young Swiss professionals from St Gallen designed the graphics and the Working Group on Education of the Conference of European Churches prepared the texts. The cards present a vision of the Europe we aspire to and where we would like to live.
Following the signing of the joint declaration in March, officially setting up the Conference on the Future of Europe, the Conference of European Churches (CEC) General Secretary Dr Jørgen Skov Sørensen expressed appreciation for the move, anticipating strong contribution from the European churches.
A new publication from the Conference of European Churches (CEC) titled Places of Worship and Holy Sites in Europe and the Middle East, edited by Dr Elizabeta Kitanovic and Rev. Dr Patrick Roger Schnabel, is now out. The book is produced in partnership with Globethics.net.
