Because of My Faith: Faith-Based Climate Action Hybrid Workshop


You are warmly invited to this hybrid event in Stockholm, Sweden.

Because of My Faith – A mobilization workshop, led by Country Director Tagele Mathewos for YBCEDO, Ethiopia – LM international’s local partner.

For those physically able to attend, there will be a light breakfast served during the workshop.

Starting with an opening by Archbishop Thomas, Secretary General of the WEA, the theological discussion of how the faith guides ecological protection and climate action will be framed.

The workshop will then be led by Tagele Matteows, with first-hand experience and impact of YBCEDO’s decades of climate action and civil society mobilisation work, and give practical insights on how bible scripture frames their climate action. Antonino Puglisi, from the Focolare movement, will round up the session, with time at the end for participant reflections and questions.

This session will help those in faith traditions better leverage faith literacy for accelerated change and climate action, in addition to using faith literacy for advocacy to attain rights and hold duty bearers accountable.

Please register here if you plan to be physically present, otherwise see on Teams!


Light breakfast will be served; coffee, tea, fruit and sandwiches.
