Speed limit, electric cars and a forest towards a climate-friendly church
from The Lutheran World Federation
A petition to introduce a 130 km-per-hour speed limit on the German Autobahn (highway) is one of the steps the Evangelical Church in Central Germany (EKM) envisages in an ambitious campaign promoting care for the creation to combat climate change. The Lutheran World Federation (LWF) member church is also encouraging its staff to use electric cars and adopt car-sharing among pastors and other interested people. Another part of the campaign is a “climate forest” in which 1,200 oaks and 10 mountain ashes have already been planted as part of efforts to compensate CO2 emission during the duties of the church leadership.
