Catholic Earthcare leads Carbon Fast, joins Earth Hour

Climate change protest

As a founding member of the Global Catholic Climate Movement, Catholic Earthcare has taken the lead for Australia to participate in a 40-day Lenten Fast for Climate Justice.

The goal is to raise awareness of climate issues and call on world leaders to take action on climate change, said a media statement released yesterday.

More than 50 countries are participating in the Carbon Fast, with different countries leading the fast on different days of Lent. Australia will be leading the fast on March 17, which also happens to be St Patrick's Day.

On this day, participants are urged to fast from either food (for example missing one or two meals), and/or carbon (by taking alternative transport such as walking, biking or public transport, or cutting personal or organisational energy consumption).
