Introducing Catholic Earthcare Australia

Catholic Earthcare is the ecological agency for the Catholic Church in Australia. Our purpose is to enable a loving and sustainable relationship with the natural world through environmental education, research, national networks, advocacy and transformation. Through our work, including key initiatives such as ASSISI, the National Energy Efficiency Network and the Global Catholic Climate Movement, we promote the understanding that our environment is sacred and endangered and must be protected and sustained for present and future generations.

We invite all people of goodwill to journey with us in the most critical and urgent of tasks – of safeguarding the integrity of Creation, acting on climate change, protecting Earth’s fragile ecosystems and providing a voice for the victims of environmental degradation, injustice and pollution.
