Climate Crisis

“Climate change is a global problem with grave implications: environmental, social, economic, political and for the distribution of goods. It represents one of the principal challenges facing humanity in our day. […] There is an urgent need to develop policies so that, in the next few years, the emission of carbon dioxide and other highly polluting gases can be drastically reduced, for example, substituting for fossil fuels and developing sources of renewable energy.” 

Laudato Si’ 25; 26

FIMCAP represents millions of young people from all parts of the world. 

Our members have been discussing and reflecting the recent climate crisis in the local groups, at regional and at national levels. Best practices how youth work and our way of living can become more sustainable have been developed. 

Catholic youth movements have already been at the forefront of those warning about the existential threat caused by the effects of human action on the global climate. But we think that the fight against climate change is one that must be fought by everyone. Therefore, FIMCAP is not only working on it’s own sustainability strategy, but also constantly raising awareness on the topic and sharing best practice examples in different networks within church and politics.
