Presentation: Did you know that...?

Morning presentation by Ms Priscilla Singh
Secretary for Women in Church and Society (WICAS)
The Lutheran World Federation, Department for Mission and Development

'Over two billion people worldwide are likely to be victims of devastating floods by 2050.' (That's impossible!, you might say.) However, this United Nations forecast is likely to happen if we continue with our unjust activities against nature.

Ms Singh presented the effects of global warming and the ongoing activities of the different worldwide organizations which are monitoring the foreseen worst-case scenario of global warming and aiming to prevent it.

She challenged the participants to take part in changing the disastrous course of the planet. 'The Bible says that where there is no vision, people perish, but everything is possible to the one who believes,' she concluded.
