International Forum
13th Ecumenical Social Week
"Hear the Cry of the Earth: Integral Ecology in Action"
7-10 October 2020, Lviv, Ukraine

Keynote speakers: Prof. Jürgen Moltmann, Dr John Chryssavgis

The annual Ecumenical Social Week (ESW) international forum addresses urgent social issues based on universal values , in this way, promotes interdisciplinary dialogue in the social sphere. It brings together the resources of the community, churches and religious organisations, government, the media, academics and educators, and social and youth organisations.

This year's forum is dedicated to the topic of integral ecology. The connection of spiritual, ethical, political, economic, and social approaches in solving environmental problems is the essence of integral ecology.

ESW seeks to involve experts in the discussion of environmental problems and to create a platform for the interdisciplinary exchange of experience and dialogue. We wish to establish communication between all agents of environmental change and, through their messages, to ‘hear the cry of the Earth’.

Organisers: Institute of Ecumenical Studies at the Ukrainian Catholic University, Lviv City Council, Lviv Regional Council, Lviv Polytechnic National University, UGCC Ecological Bureau, the public organisation “Center of Eco-Theology and Sustainable Development”, the “Clean City” initiative, and the Christian churches of Lviv.
