Earth Day: Care for our Common Home
April 22nd is Earth Day. Now the largest secular observance in the world, it is marked by more than a billion people every year as a day of action to change human behaviour and create global, national and local policy changes. Churches worldwide back this movement wholeheartedly. The Global Catholic Climate Movement (GCCM), created in 2015, was the combination of two transformative events that would shape how the Church and humanity responded to the ecological crisis: the Laudato Si’ encyclical release and the Paris Climate Agreement.
