Engage and Connect
Connecting with others who share our leadings and concerns can make all the difference between feeling overwhelmed by today's environmental challenges and being a part of a growing community working for positive change. QEW brings together Friends and caring souls from all over North America who are seeking to live in right relationship with all of creation and aspiring for the peace and justice that will result when the earth's ecological integrity is restored.

AS THE TWIN CITIES Friends Meeting Fellowship Committee, we were excited about the Quaker Earthcare Witness Spring Steering Committee meeting here in mid-April. We have long felt that food and fellowship are vital parts of witnessing, sharing, and caring for our beautiful planet.
This July (2019) we are bringing together leaders of African descent who are working in our communities on the issues of water and food sovereignty for a meeting at U.N. Headquarters during the High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development.
We will learn together, share resources, and strengthen the connections between communities of African descent to increase access to clean water, protect watersheds, and develop strategies to respond to the water-related impacts of climate degradation.
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.
