“Can we remain indifferent before the problems associated with such realities as climate change? … A greater sense of intergenerational solidarity is urgently needed.” (Benedict XVI)
Concerned about man-made climate change and united by our Catholic faith, we have come together to care for God’s creation, for the poor –who are the most vulnerable to climate disruption–, and for our children –who will face the worst impacts in the coming years–. We encourage Catholics to renew our relationship with creation and with our brothers and sisters in poverty, and we urge our political leaders to commit to ambitious climate action to solve this urgent crisis and keep the global temperature increase below 1.5 degree Celsius (relative to pre-industrial levels).
LENTEN FAST FOR CLIMATE JUSTICE
Our first initiative is a global fast for climate justice in Lent 2015, in which Catholics from more than 40 countries will fast during each of the 40 days, praying for bold action to solve the climate change crisis. Read more and join the Lenten Fast.
