Founded by the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference, Catholic Earthcare Australia promotes understanding that creation is sacred and must be protected and preserved for present and future generations.

It is mandated, through the activities of education, research and advocacy to give leadership in responding to Pope John Paul II’s call to ‘stimulate and sustain the ecological conversion’. It responds to the call of Laudato si’, the environmental encyclical in which Pope Francis invited Catholics all around the world to reflect, pray and take action to protect our common home.
