Churches and Christians prepare ecumenically for European elections

Various religious and church groups are trying to work ecumenically to put concerns on the agenda of the upcoming European elections. Ecumenical Voices' publication pictured here is available in three languages. The website has useful links to Climate Change and Environment, Peace and Development, Migrant and Refugee Protection, Poverty and Social Exclusion.

Meanwhile Ensemble pour L'Europe - Together for Europe have been organising meetings and events in various countries in the run up to the elections. Réforme, La Croix and other Christian media in France helped sponsor a day conference in Paris yesterday. The meeting brought together more than 25 Christian communities and movements from France and is linked in to a wider European movement of more than 150 communities and organisations.
