In these times of economic and environmental crisis, there is a fresh urgency for Christians to engage in reflection and action on the “economy of water”.
Water is the lifeblood of the planet as well as the economy. It is crucial for sustainable development in regard to health, food security, energy and poverty – issues that affect and engage churches around the world in different ways.
In 2012, the Seven Weeks for Water will pay special attention to the emerging and controversial “Green Economy” concept.
