Faith communities are addressing challenges posed by climate change in South Florida through both teaching and action. In his 2015 encyclical “Laudato Si: On Care for our Common Home,” Pope Francis identifies climate change as a moral issue and calls for “a new dialogue about how we are shaping the future of our planet.

“We need a conversation which includes everyone, since the environmental challenge we are undergoing, and its human roots, concern and affect us all.”
