How can GroeneKerken get more churches engaged in its social movement?
 
Sustainability is becoming of increased importance. One of the aspects of a sustainable lifestyle is living in balance with nature, caring for the environment and ecological justice. These three aspects can be combined in ‘care for the earth’ which is by many Christians seen as a biblical task. They believe that God has created the earth and has given this earth to the people to work and keep it, and take a good care of it. When presuming this definition and biblical task, how can it be that there are so many churches in The Netherlands and only so little of them are seriously engaged with sustainability? Why are Christians not frontrunners in sustainability? These two questions were the start of designing and performing this research.
