Twenty current and future church leaders will be selected to attend the Ecumenical School on Governance, Economics and Management (GEM) for an Economy of Life in Jakarta, Indonesia next August. Jointly initiated by Council for World Mission (CWM), World Council of Churches (WCC) and World Communion of Reformed Churches (WCRC), the GEM School seeks to develop churches’ competencies in economics, and strengthen their voice on global economics. This addresses a gap where currently, the Church’s ethical and theological perspectives on the global economy have little impact on financial and economic policies, business practices and perspectives.
Also, GEM School aims to build economic literacy in churches by equipping participants with the tools and languages to effectively advocate for urgent transformations in the global financial and economic sector.
