Who We Are
The World Student Christian Federation
WSCF / FUMEC / FUACE
The WSCF is a global fellowship of Student Christian Movements putting their faith into action to contribute to the renewal of the ecumenical movement and to promote justice and peace in the world.
WSCF is called to be a prophetic witness in church and the transformation of the world where God’s love for creation, justice and peace is shared by all across boundaries of race, class, ethnicity, culture, gender and sexuality.
This vision is nurtured by a radical hope of God’s reign in history and liberating faith in Jesus Christ.
WSCF is a non-governmental organization in special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council at the United Nations (ECOSOC) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO); advisory status to the World Council of Churches (WCC) Central Committee; and member of the Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance and Act Alliance.
Ecumenism is by definition about collaboration. The WSCF believes that one of the keys to the future of the ecumenical movement is increased and deepened collaboration between partner organisations and networks – whether international, nongovernmental, or ecumenical.
Partnership is key to the success of the WSCF’s mission to empower and equip students and youth worldwide for faith and action; to making a tangible impact on the many issues we hold in common with various partners; and to finding creative new ways of living the ecumenical movement’s vision today.
