Jahrestagung Poster 2015

50 years ago, at Vatican II, the Catholic Church set the task of facing the “joys and the hopes, the griefs and the anxieties of the men of this age“.

In this perspective, it is surprising that – until now – the church has been reserved in her responses to the current global challenges that can simply be summarised under the keyword “sustainability”. Regarding their characteristics, the church is capable of providing significant stimuli for a sustainable development, both on a global and local level.

In this context we want to discuss the question what an explicit Christian input could look like and which steps are necessary.
