online dialogue

With this online dialogue we want to focus on the role of churches and the theological background of a commitment to climate justice and climate action. Futhermore we will  have a common look on the facts and figures about the climate crises and its effects on Tanzania. In addition  we want to get inspired by the best practice project „Water for Malya“ and discuss what is needed to act together and initiate further projects and change in our churches.
