This project revolves around Grøn Kirke as an organisation and how the Danish church and christianity is responding to the climate crisis. Based on collected empirical information this project enlightens the reader in how christianity is responding to the crisis and the critique it faces. The main focus of the project is Grøn Kirke, which is an organisation consisting of 204 churches that wants to use christianity to improve the climate and environmental situation that we are currently facing. The assignment includes the views of Grøn Kirke as well as views of one of the founders of Grøn Kirke: Martin Ishøy. He is in charge of the theological aspects of Grøn Kirke and through an elite interview with him this assignment analyses and reviews the theological interpretation of Grøn Kirke with a humanities studies perspective. Through analysis of prayers and sermons found on their webpage we created an overview of the predominant christian values represented by Grøn Kirke. We look at Grøn Kirkes way of interpreting these specific values and how they incorporate them into their written works and campaigns. While also looking at the works of historian Lynn White Jr. and the critique it receives from Martin Ishøy in his ecotheological book Klimaklar Kristendom: miljøteologiske begrundelser (2009), we investigate how Whites theory regarding christianity and ecology has influenced Grøn Kirke.
