Caritas Climate Justice Petition 2017

All around the world vulnerable communities are being impacted by the drastic effects of climate change; millions of people and other species are suffering as a result.

Caritas Australia is organizing a Climate Justice Petition  in partnership with Micah Australia, which is a coalition of different churches and Christian organisations. The purpose of the 2017 petition is to raise a powerful voice for justice and a world free from poverty.

Caritas Australia invites all Brigidine Sisters, their associates and partners in ministry, as well as their past pupils, to help build a huge climate justice campaign in 2017.

The petitions calls on the Australian Government to take stronger action to reduce our emissions, transition to clean energy and support our most vulnerable neighbours as they face the increasingly severe impacts of climate change.

“Accepting the urgency, it seems clear to me also that climate change is a problem which can no longer be left to a future generation.

When it comes to the care of our ‘common home,’ we are living at a critical moment of history.”  Pope Francis
