ECEN Workshop: Theology of Hope for Oikos


What is the basis of our hope? How can we make a realistic, immanent theology of hope in ecological context? What kind of ark we have to make for the end of the world?

ECEN Theology Workshop "Theology of Hope for Oikos" will be held in Budapest on 28–29 August 2017. The aim of this workshop is to deepen our theological insights and in mutual sharing to contribute to clarifying what is the role of theology in our works on care for creation.
