Youth engagement at WCC Assembly 2021

The World Council of Churches is inviting young people from its member churches to engage with the 2021 WCC Assembly in Karlsruhe. There are two opportunities which young adults in the Uniting Church might consider.

  1. Youth Songwriting Competition
  • As the World Council of Churches (WCC) 11th Assembly preparations progress, the Assembly Worship Planning Committee together with the WCC Youth Engagement programme are presenting a creative opportunity to young people between the ages of 18 and 35 who attend a WCC member church, inviting them to enter a songwriting competition. This is part of efforts and initiatives involving and engaging young people in the planning and delivery of the assembly; they continue to be a part of the ecumenical movement with their young voices through music. Deadline is 30 June 2020.

  1. Call for Papers, youth engagement in the ecumenical movement book project. 
  • The World Council of Churches (WCC) Youth Engagement in the ecumenical movement plans to publish a book with young people’s voices, for the first time in 25 years. We are inviting young people ages 18-30 from our member churches, ecumenical partners, and people of goodwill all over the world to submit articles on the current situation of young people today: their challenges, the transformational potentials they see, and their vision of the movement, moving forward. The first round of selection submissions should be an abstract of 350 words maximum by 15 May 2020. The full article is not needed.
