Activism + church = <3 ?

The church has always made it’s mind be heard in the matters of ethics. But how far can the church go? Should it encourage activism og sivil disobedience?

We’ve invited som people who have been quite radical in they’re following of Christ. Listen to their stories and get inspired or provoked.

Gina Gylver is 17 years old, pronounced Christian and leader in Oslo Nature and Youth. She will talk about her community commitment, with particular focus on what the church can do for the climate.

Media and Communications Manager of German YMCA, Sebastian Vogt, will lead the conversation.

Fredrik Glad Gjernes is 50 years old and head of the Norwegian YMCA-YWCA Global. KFUK-KFUM Global is working for a better world, both through providing aid to less fortunate countries, but also through political advocacy here in Norway. Fredrik comes and explains why he believes that being a Christian and being an activist fits well together.
