Share green hearts on Valentine's Day

In his encyclical Laudato Si’, Pope Francis invites us all to have a conversation about how we are shaping the future of our planet. We all love something that is affected by climate change, from our global neighbours living in poverty to treasured places here in the UK. It is something worth talking about.

We need to talk...

 “I urgently appeal, then, for a new dialogue about how we are shaping the future of our planet. We need a conversation which includes everyone.” 

Pope Francis

Since 2015, CAFOD joins the Climate Coalition's Show the Love campaign every Valentine's Day to start conversations about how the things we love are affected by climate change. Show your love for our common home by starting a conversation about climate change, how it affects our global neighbours, and how renewable energy can help them out of poverty.

This page is full of resources, prayers and creative ideas to help you get talking about climate change with your parish, friends, family and even your MP.
