Welcome to The Pollinator! Here you will find items of interest submitted by members of the Lausanne/WEA Creation Care Network who are scattered across 130 countries. This material will fall into several categories:

  • Reports (events, initiatives, projects that have happened already).
  • Announcements and prayer (events etc. that are planned in the near future).
  • Opportunities (conferences, materials, resources that others may find helpful).
  • Resources (books, curriculum, tools that may be useful to you in your own work).
  • News (items from the general media related to creation care and the environment).

All of this material comes from people like you. Please send us your items – reports on what you have done, requests for prayer about upcoming activities, events you would like to invite people to attend. We will post everything we receive here that is related to creation care and will publish a selection in the Pollinator newsletter each month.
