National Youth Program

We are young people in schools, universities, Parishes and community leading for real change.

Join a national movement of young people around Australia 

Live Laudato Si’, and take the next step in responding to climate change. 

We’re still forming, and we need your help.

Earthcare is designed, driven and led by incredible young people around Austalia. Whether you’re involved in youth ministry, at school, university, or just have a keen passion waiting to be ignited on sustainability, we want to hear from you. Join us, and together we can create an amazing social movement within the Catholic faith that leads, acts and supports those around us to respond to Laudato Si’, and care for our common home.



Register your interest to connect with like-minded peers in your Diocese, Church and Oder, and across your state. You’ll have the opportunity to codesign the movement in your region, network with people your own age, and be inspired, guided and supported to be the change you want to see. Bonus? Leadership, learn new skills and meet some amazing people!



Leadership isn’t one person – it’s many. The strength of this movement is build on collaboration, sharing and supporting. Start asking questions in Diocese, school and community – is there an environmental group? Are there some local champions, some leaders I can talk to?



Become a founding member of Earthcare in your local Diocese, Parish or Independent schools community with friends and community. Our handy guide here will kick start your journey. 

Alternatively, join us at the state, and national levels to bring together the movement as a whole. 

Join us, and be the change you want to see.
