The educational programs and materials of the churches involved in the World Council of Churches must be a part of the response that the poor nations of the Third World are demanding from the developed countries. Change is a key concept to these educational concepts and can only be effected by political action. Actions that must be taken on the part of the Church are: (1) the development of a theology that is relevant to questions of economic and social change, (2) an inquiry into the attitudes that Europeans have towards the Third World, and (3) the application of political pressure on candidates at election time by making them aware of serious local concern about the problems facing poor countries.
