Member organization welcome guide
Thank you for joining the Global Catholic Climate Movement and our global network of member organizations.
As one of GCCM’s organizational partners, you play an essential role in helping us educate and mobilize the Catholic community on Pope Francis’ call to care for creation. To learn more about our 2017 priorities and ways you can get involved, visit our 2017 Calendar of Events.
After oMcially joining as a partner in our signup form, here are ways to celebrate your new membership with GCCM and help spread the word in our Catholic family:
2)ENCOURAGE YOUR NETWORK TO GO GREEN
The Eco-Parish Guide helps Catholic parishes reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by taking action in
relation to parish operations, the congregation, and the broader community.
3)ASK YOUR INSTITUTION TO DIVEST FROM FOSSIL FUELS
Catholic institutions are divesting from fossil fuel companies and reinvesting in renewable energy as a response to Laudato Si’. Ask your diocese and local Catholic institutions (religious orders, universities, etc) to take this important step:
4)SHARE THE LAUDATO SI’ MESSAGE
Host a talk, conference or study group about the Laudato Si’ encyclical, using our encyclical resources
5)ASK CATHOLIC NEWS OUTLETS TO WRITE ABOUT GCCM
Contact Catholic newspapers, magazines, and TV or radio stations, to write about your activities related to care for creation and our ongoing campaigns (you could send them our Press page link: www.catholicclimatemovement.global/press).
Would also be great if you could send us your press contacts so we make sure they get our press releases (or let us know if you prefer to forward our press releases directly to them).
6)INVITE OTHER CATHOLIC ORGANIZATIONS TO JOIN GCCM
We are always looking to expand our network, so we would appreciate if you could introduce us to other Catholic organizations in your city or country (such as religious congregations, faith-based NGOs, diocesan Justice and Peace oMces, educational institutions, Caritas agencies, etc). Just send an introductory email for us (see contact information below) and we can follow up.
Questions or ideas? We are always happy to discuss ways to better collaborate. Please contact us:
