Welcome to our "Voices for Change" blog

CIDSE staff, allies and friends reflect on current issues that are challenging and transforming systems such as those for producing and consuming food or energy, at their intersection with greater systems of injustice: patriarchy, racism, colonialism or capitalism. The blog also features stories of change to break out of abusive and unjust systems, however small or big the change.

What’s the place of transition in the Christian message?

Wednesday, 14 February 2018 09:16

In Fastenopfer, the Swiss Lenten Fund in Switzerland, our Lenten campaign this year is inspired by Pope Francis’ call for an “ecological conversion” in the encyclical “Laudato Si.’” It calls for an inner conversion: the realization that we are one with all of humanity and nature. Through our Lenten campaign, we want to build a movement of people inspired by this call who will actively contribute to build a world where everyone has enough to live.

Transitioning to a low-carbon and sustainable economy based on accessible and affordable renewable energy for all is a key pillar to achieve the targets set by the Paris Agreement. The changes required in our societies and economies are profound, so how are we to ensure a just transition for all, where no one is left behind and planetary boundaries are respected?

Blogging towards systemic change

Monday, 18 December 2017 11:32

We are proud to launch CIDSE’s new “Voices for Change” blog. This blog space is dedicated to “systemic change.” It will reflect and analyse current issues that are challenging and transforming systems such as those for producing and consuming food or energy, at their intersection with greater systems of injustice: patriarchy, racism, colonialism or capitalism. It will also bring stories of change to break out of abusive and unjust systems, however small or big the change. We look forward to contributions from the CIDSE family, partners and allies to this blog space.
