Welcome to gronkirke.dk
Gronkirke.dk is a Danish website on church, the environment and climate change.
Gronkirke.dk offers inspiration for working with climate change and the environment in a church setting – in church services and in practical management of the church buildings and activities.
The initiative for Gronkirke.dk is taken by Grøn Kirke, a working group of the National Council of Churches in Denmark.
- Make your church a “Green Church”: List of 48 points
Inspired by churches all over Europe, a rising numer of Danish congregations are taking up the challenge to become "green churches". To become a Green Church, churches must work with the checklist, committing to 25 of 48 measures, including at least 2 within 6 categories.
The checklist is revised June 2015
- The Church Climate Change Relay
Glacier stones from Greenland, uncovered by the receding inland ice; shrivelled up maize from Malawi; bleached, dead corals from the Pacific Ocean, and coffee beans from Central America are travelling from church to church throughout Denmark for use in services that focus on climate change.
