Earthcare Statements

  • At Yearly Meeting 2007, Quakers took a first step towards outlining an Australian Quaker commitment to 'walking softly over the Earth'. This was further discussed at Standing Committee in July 2007, and the authors were asked to bring a Statement on Earthcare which was accepted at Yearly Meeting 2008, as a statement of a Quaker commitment to caring for the Earth.
  • In 2019 the Australian Quaker Earthcare Committee issued the 2019 Earthcare Climate Emergency and Species Extinction Epistle, which can be read here.
