ABOUT THE EARTHCARE SCHOOLS PROGRAM
Catholic Earthcare Australia wants to acknowledge the good works happening in schools and nurture their development, growing abundance in addressing our ecological challenges so that, we as a church, can lead by example and follow our well-formed hearts with practical steps which engage the whole community in caring for our mother earth.
Schools will work with Earthcare staff on a report showcasing Catholic Earthcare Steps to Ecological Dialogue with an emphasis on Step 7 Sustain and Go Forth and Step 8 Animate Others.
