The Canberra Declaration must be seen by, affirmed by and signed by as many people as possible. In this process we hope the Canberra Declaration is also an encouragement and resource to many. We trust it encourages the broader Christian and non-Christian community to acknowledge and respond wisely to the challenges we face.

There remains a need for unified awareness and specific response to the challenges of the future. The number of signees will add weight to the voice we bring to those issues, and those who are community members will also be informed and invited to lend their voice to those future actions.
