changing the world

Together with its partner organisations, Norwegian Church Aid works to influence political decisions and attitudes in favour of a more just world.

Norwegian Church Aid seeks to influence the decisions made by authorities and businesses with regard to issues that affect the political, economic and social rights of the poor.

Norwegian Church Aid addresses decision-makers in Norway as well in the regions where we are active. These efforts to influence decisions could also target multinational corporations and multilateral organizations. The large networks of which Norwegian Church Aid is a part enable us to achieve a wide mobilization for influencing decisions in favour of the poor and oppressed.

Norwegian Church Aid also works to influence the attitudes of individuals, congregations and local communities, to induce them to fulfil their obligation to act to promote human dignity and human rights. In particular, it is essential to foster attitudes that promote human rights, as expressed in the various UN conventions and declarations that promote responsible management of the environment.
