A First of Its Kind!…The Global Catholic Climate Movement (GCCM) launched in January, 2015.
CYNESA is proud to be a founding member of this new coalition and looks forward to help grow the movement and share perspectives of accompanying communities and young people in Africa affected by climate change.
GCCM becomes the first of its kind, an international coalition of Catholics from many nations, continents, and walks of life; laity, religious, and clergy, theologians, scientists, and activists from Argentina, the Philippines, the United Kingdom, Kenya, Australia, the United States. The coalition is inspired by Church teachings and guided by the virtue of prudence—understood by St. Thomas Aquinas as “right reason applied to action.”
Founding GCCM members include: Catholic Earthcare Australia, Franciscan Action Network, Dan Misleh of the US Catholic Climate Covenant, Acción Católica Argentina, Catholic Youth Network for Environmental Sustainability in Africa, Archdiocese of Manila Ecology Ministry, Columban Center for Advocacy and Outreach, EcoJesuit, Reconciliation with Creation, Jesuit Conference Asia Pacific, CatholicEcology.net, Our Voices.
