WSCF workshop, Executive Committee Meeting and WCC Assembly

October 23 - November 8, Busan, South Korea

The WCC is developing the 2013 Busan Assembly with the concept of an “expanded ecumenical space”, inviting ecumenical organizations to hold their own leadership meetings/ events before or after the Assembly and to use this Assembly space to think creatively together about the future of ecumenism. The WSCF ExCo decided to participate and advocate fully in the WCC Assembly, apart from holding our workshop, events, ExCo meeting before the Assembly.

This will be an opportunity for SCM Korea (KSCF) to participate, contribute, and inspire and challenge its own students to a strong vision for its future and its collaboration with other partners in the ecumenical movement. This event will be attended and participated by the WSCF global executive staff, ExCo members, students from KSCF and senior friends. WSCF will participate in the WCC Youth Pre-Assembly and will have access to many of the Assembly components and meetings. During the assembly WSCF will have a “booth” to talk with people about WSCF. Madang- WSCF will lead a workshop on Eco-Justice and will hold an exhibition. UDPS will be observed with the students and senior friends gathered in the assembly.
