How cities develop over the next twenty to thirty years of rapid global urbanization, especially in Africa and Asia, will be critical to our global ecological future. For this reason the WEA Creation Care Task Force has engaged with UN-Habitat since 2013 and has sent delegations to Habitat III, the 9th World Urban Forum, and hosted UN-Habitat Faith-Based Urban Thinkers Campuses in 2017 and 2019 where we hosted a regional conference for Africa, Central and South America, Asia, North America, and Europe.
We also helped form the Urban Shalom Society, which will be sending another delegation to UN-Habitat’s 10th World Urban Forum (WUF10) in Abu Dhabi Feb. 8-13, 2020.

To learn more about the LWCCN’s perspective on cities and creation care we suggest reading the Gospel and the Future of Cities: A Call to Action statement developed in response to Habitat III at this link: http://www.weacreationcare.org/the-gospel-the-future-of-cities-a-call-to-action/.
