The November 10 event was hosted by Mount St Benedict College in Pennant Hills, Sydney, and attended by Bishop Vincent Long OFM Conv, Bishop of Parramatta.

Catholic Earthcare Australia, a program of Caritas Australia, collaborated with students at Mount Saint Benedict College, Saint Scholastica’s College, Saint Mary Star of the Sea College and Stella Maris College to design and lead the one-day event.

“Our focus is always to empower students to advocate for and take action on ecological justice and sustainability,” said Sabrina Stevens, Caritas Australia’s Youth Coordinator.

“This year, the theme is: ‘from little things, big things grow’, which reflects how the youth summit is created by students, for students, with a view to develop their capacity to advocate for the future they want to see.

“I’m excited to see so many young people who are invested in the future of our planet, and through these events, Catholic Earthcare supports young people to take leadership and take action to care for creation. It’s really thrilling to see students respond to the call to care for our common home and put in the time and effort to build an event like this.”

Catholic Earthcare Australia will hold more youth summits in other states.
