    The Environment Sector of the Charter for Compassion includes individuals and partner organizations that have passion and compassion for the Earth and all the life that inhabits our planet and interconnects with the whole of the Universe. Whether it’s eco-economy, growing eco-municipalities, actively reducing our carbon footprint, promoting healthy agriculture and food production, respectful treatment of animals, healthy land management, restoring lands using Indigenous wisdom, fair distribution of scarce resources, fighting for human and civil rights - they all serve to enhance our human stewardship for the planet and all Her sentient life.

    The vision and mission of the Environment sector of the Charter for Compassion speaks to the responsibility we have to be stewards of our planet and the actions we undertake to guarantee justice for all living things.

    Our Vision: All humans taking responsibility for the thriving of Mother Earth.

    Our Mission: Galvanize and support compassionate actions that honor and sustain the web of life.

    Today...we have to realize that a true ecological approach always becomes a social approach; it must integrate questions of justice in debates on the environment, so as to hear both the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor.   ~Pope Francis

    Respect and gratitude – two key components to any healthy relationship. Our relationship with the natural world should be no different. The Environment Sector of the Charter for Compassion seeks to remind each of us that respect for our planet and gratitude for the gifts She provides for us should be at the forefront of our minds on a daily basis.
