World Environment Day 5 June 2015
A Blessed World Environment Day to you all. The WED theme for this year is “Seven Billion Dreams. One Planet. Consume with Care.”
We reflect on the relation between world population growth, the growth of consciousness, as well as the impact of a consumer society on the wellbeing of our planet. As earthkeepers it is imperative that we acknowledge that our earth is not an endless resource for human development, but a living interdependent community and that we should respect its boundaries.

We hope that your faith community will devote some time to celebrate World Environment Day. Let us make time to appreciate this unique planet and make a conscious effort to practice prudence, conscientiousness and compassion in the consumer choices we make.
We include liturgical resources with prayers and reflections relating to this theme for you to use on this World Environment Weekend. Please let us know if you found these helpful:
