As we prepare to set the priorities of the work of the Conference for the years up to 2015, CEC wishes to set its course in a wider context. A Future Conference was held on Sept 10th-12th 2008, in order to broaden the perspective of CEC’s future missions.
Visions of CEC
In order to respond to these questions and others and to reflect on a vision for the future and in preparation of the 13th CEC Assembly, we organised a Future Conference on our way to Lyon. At this Future Conference (held from 10-12 September at the Valpré Centre in Lyon) CEC actively engaged in envisioning the future up to the year 2029. 2029 has been especially chosen as representing a distance of 40 years from the first European Ecumenical Assembly in Basle in 1989. In 2029, CEC will celebrate its 70th anniversary.
A strong ecumenical movement
The aim of this conference was to strengthen the ecumenical movement in Europe by reinforcing CEC as a credible, recognised, influential and stable organisation that is in service of its member churches, its partners and the ecumenical movement as a whole. The process from the Future Conference to the 13th CEC Assembly is one of reflection on the results of the conference and of consultation with the CEC Member Churches and Partner / Associated Organisations.
