The Alliance for Religions and Conservation (ARC) has extended an invitation to CYNESA's Executive Director, Mr. Allen Ottaro, to participate in an event during which more than 25 faith groups from across Africa, will launch their long-term action plans on the environment.
Inspired by the Long-term Commitments for a Living Planet launched by 31 faith groups at ARC's Windsor Celebration in 2009, Christian, Muslim and Hindu faith groups will launch their own long-term plans at ARC's Many Heavens, One Earth, Our Continent celebration in Nairobi, Kenya, in September 2012.
They include Christian and Muslim groups from Cameroon, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda and Zimbabwe. Hindu leaders are developing a plan for all of Africa (Hindus are present in 26 African countries).
CYNESA will take advantage of this opportunity to further network, and learn from the action plans that will inform our own planning meeting, slated for the first-quarter of 2013. To read more about ARC and the African Faith Commitments, go to: http://www.arcworld.org/projects.asp?projectID=563
