Students Concerned with Eco-Justice

I have recently returned from San Francisco where I attended a gathering of the World Student Christian Federation (WSCF) where they worked to re-launch their activities in North America. It was exciting to be a part of this group of students who have come together in their efforts to live out their faith by answering the call of Micah 6:8, “to do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with your God.” I was even more excited when the group decided to make Eco-justice one of their priorities for engagement over the next two years. At the conference, the Eco-justice focus group decided to try and hold similar events on each of their campuses a couple times of years, to strengthen the movement in the North American region and draw attention to a shared ecological concern. 

The first of these events will take place this March.  A few students on campuses across the US and Canada are hosting candlelight vigils to show their commitment to preventing the worst impacts of global climate change on creation and those living in poverty around the world. The goal is to have at least one campus hold a vigil each day from March 6th to March 12th 2009. If you would like to hold a candlelight vigil on your campus on one of these days click here! If you are interested in forming a group on your campus affiliated with the World Student Christian Federation check out their website or look them up on Facebook.
