WCC and young people

Emily Evans, a member of the Uniting Church in Australia, has been an active member of the World Council of Churches Central Committee since 2013 when she was elected at the WCC Assembly in Busan, Korea.

Along with others has been actively involved in developing By-laws for the WCC Young People in the Ecumencial Movement Commission (#YPEM). The photo below shows the presentation at the recent WCC Central Committee meeting.

Emily also provided leadership for the election process, by consensus, of the new WCC General Secretary. The WCC uses the consensus procedure pioneered by Dr Jill Tabart, former President of the Uniting Church in Australia.

Emily now lives in Darwin but returns to Melbourne to visit family and friends. On her next visit, it would be great to hear more from Emily about engaging and empowering younger adults in the ecumenical movement. Watch this space!
