Climate Justice is at the Heart of Our Faith. The Earth Day Theme for 2021 is Restore Our Earth which focuses not only on reducing our impact on natural processes, with emerging green technologies, and innovative thinking, but how we can restore the world’s ecosystems, rejecting the notion that mitigation or adaption are the only ways to address climate change.
