Quaker Earthcare Witness has grown over the last 32 years out of a deepening sense of spiritual connection with the natural world. From this has come an urgency to work on the critical issues of our times, including climate and environmental justice. This year we are excited to see that more people are mobilizing than ever before both within and beyond the Religious Society of Friends around the eco-crises we are facing.
With your help, Quaker Earthcare Witness is responding to the growing need for inspiration and support for Friends and Meetings.
Emma is a lifelong Quaker from La Paz, Bolivia. She visited the United States this summer to share about climate change in her country and her efforts to organize youth around access to water as the Executive Director of the Friends International Bilingual Center. Here she shares her testimony.
Quaker Earthcare Witness has updated our Earthcare for Children curriculum to help our children ages 5 - 12 walk gently over God’s Earth through interactive and fun activities. In the lessons, we will experience the Earth as our home, see how we share our home with God’s creatures, and learn how we can behave in caring ways for our world.
