Waking the Giant – Annual Global Meeting


Global meeting and official launch of an LWF initiative aimed at involving churches with the 2030 UN Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The meeting will for the first time bring together different stakeholders involved in the global LWF initiative “Waking the Giant – Churches’ Involvement in the 2030 UN Agenda for Sustainable Development”. This includes the National Coordinators from the current four target countries (Liberia, Tanzania, Colombia, United States), representatives of participating churches, and funding partners.

The first day will end with an official public launch of the initiative, which will be attended by UN agencies and leaders from the ecumenical movement, who will jointly reflect on the role that churches play in reaching the SDGs and the potential of strengthened partnerships between faith-based actors, governments and the UN in achieving the Agenda 2030.
