Stewardship of Creation


Progress and Prospects on Water

Progress and Prospects on Water: Striving for Sustainability in a Changing World. World Water Week in Stockholm (August 2007).

Water is a priority issue for the Office of the Anglican Observer at the United Nations. Accordingly, in August I represented the Anglican Communion at the World Water Week in Stockholm. Sponsored by the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI), the World Water Week is a well-established forum for international efforts to find sustainable solutions to the world's escalating water crisis.

Declaration to the Anglican Communion
by the Anglican Global Congress on the Stewardship of Creation

Brothers and Sisters in Christ, we greet you and speak to you in the name of our Trinitarian God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit: Creator, Redeemer, and Life Giver.

We write as representatives of the provinces of the Anglican Communion gathered in response to the planetary crisis and immediately prior to the World Summit on Sustainable Development.

With the blessing of the Archbishop of Canterbury, the General Secretary of the Anglican Consultative Council, and the chair of the Anglican Consultative Council, our purpose is to consider the Communion's responsibilities to God and God's creation at this critical time. At the last Lambeth Conference in 1998 our Bishops again identified the environment as one of the key moral and religious issues of our time and their principles have been part of our reflection.
