ABOUT PROJECT 20.'25
Established in 1846, the World Evangelical Alliance is a network of national evangelical church alliances in 129 countries and over 100 international evangelical organizations. The World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) provides a worldwide identity, voice, and platform to more than 600 million evangelical Christians.
With a global backdrop of serious ecological challenges, growing awareness of the biblical mandate to care for creation, and an increasing need to provide leadership in this arena at a global level, the WEA decided to create the WEA Creation Care Task Force (CCTF) in 2012.
After several years of fruitful collaboration, the WEA Creation Care Task Force and Lausanne Creation Care joined together to co-lead one unified global creation care network called the Lausanne/WEA Creation Care Network (LWCCN).
In 2019 the WEA launched the WEA Sustainability Center (WEASC) in the strategic “UN City” of Bonn, Germany. The overarching objective of the WEASC is to equip churches and congregations around the world to implement creation care on a daily basis, thereby becoming a strong, legitimate, and unified voice in global sustainability. As the leadership of the WEA CCTF and WEASC work together their combined, integrated, and strategic efforts are advancing the effectiveness of the evangelical community to care for God’s gift of creation.
In the pursuit of its objectives, WEA Creation Care Task Force, the WEA Business Coalition, and the WEA Sustainability Center have partnered to work with Smart Roofs Solar to support WEA’s Project 20.’25 to assist 20% of its members – educational institutions, medical facilities, churches, other affiliated entities, and households – to be powered by clean renewable energy by 2025.
