We can solve this

A better future is in our hands.

The system is broken

Addressing the planetary crisis can improve the health, security, and future prospects of all people on Earth.

A warmer planet means a greater risk of extreme weather. This leads to a greater risk of hunger and sickness. Migration and conflict follow.

The loss of biodiversity, a “great extinction,” threatens God’s creation and the production of food and medicine.

A better way

All major faith traditions–7 in 10 people on Earth–encourage us to care for our common home.

Catholics alone–1 in 6 people on Earth–stand on decades of papal teaching about urgent action on the ecological crisis.

We have strength in our values and each other.

We have the power

The tools to protect our common home are already with us.

Families are committed to solving the planetary crisis for the people they love.

About 4 in 10 people on Earth are under age 25. They are standing up for the future of our common home.
