Diocese of Swaziland – Young Green Anglicans
The Young people of the Diocese of Swaziland held a four day conference as other Dioceses used to do previously. Beginning on the 10th of December 2015 the Diocesan youth gathered at St Michaels Anglican School in Manzini to celebrate their annual conference. Green Anglicans was invited to come and speak to the young people about the importance of environmental ministry in their spiritual life. With more than 450 delegates the conference venue was obviously going to be filled with programs laying on the ground and lots of plastic packets, however with the pre-conference environmental awareness, we had responsible young people that used bins and other measure that were provided to maintain a clean environment.
As the conference progressed we looked at the economy of the country and farming as being a major boost in Swaziland, the young people vowed to start up food gardens in their homes and parishes as well as educate those who were absent during the conference about being a young Green Anglican .
