Caring for our Common Home
The third imperative is Caring for Our Common Home. It is also a call to hope.
"We have been called to understand our relationship with the earth in many ways...." This is an urgent call. We need to respond by seeking creative and effective ways to heed this urgency. We need to heed the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor.
"As educators for justice, we are committed to reflection, critical analysis and action in order to effect changes in the root causes and systems that endanger our planet and those who are most vulnerable."
"We know that such transformation can only begin by acknowledging our personal responsibility for our common home. We want to examine the ways in which we are complicit in unethical environmental and consumer practices, and address these as constructively as possible."
