Anglican Leader Wins Award for Environmental Work

According to an article on the British-based, Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams has received an award for his environmental efforts.
The Parliamentary Renewable and Sustainable Energy Group (PRESAG) acknowledged the Archbishop of Canterbury’s contributions and gave recognition to the work that the Church of England is doing to promote sustainable energy issues to the public and to policy makers.

PRESAG brings together politicians from across the parties and senior industry stakeholders to promote sustainable energy issues in Parliament and the wider political community.
The Church of England is currently promoting a national campaign called Shrinking the Footprint. Spearheading the campaign, Dr Williams has said: “For the Church of the 21st Century, good ecology is not an optional extra but a matter of justice. It is therefore central to what it means to be a Christian.”
