God made humans responsible for taking care of creation. How well are we doing?
In 2019, Pope Francis declared a global “climate emergency,” warning of the dangers of global heating and that a failure to act urgently to reduce greenhouse gases would be “a brutal act of injustice toward the poor and future generations.”
This workshop is a response to that urgency. It can help your community of faith…
As people of faith, we believe that we must create a new way of producing and consuming that acts in harmony with nature and prioritizes the dignity of marginalized communities. We are called to be a people that cherish life over death, generosity over exploitation, and the common good over profit.
The workshop is fit for any occasion: keynote presentations, assemblies and convocations, retreats and staff development, "First Friday" lecture, or whatever format works best for your community or group.
CCAO offers this workshop all year long, and is able to travel to any part of the country. The workshop is facilitated by a member of our staff, each of whom has experience advocating for environmental justice.
CCAO asks that hosts pay for the workshop facilitator's travel and lodging. We do not charge an honorarium/speaker fee, but a donation to the Missionary Society of St. Columban is appreciated.
