GREEN DAY FOR PEACE is an initiative of Global Gardens of Peace dedicated to raising awareness of the value of green space for every individual’s health and wellbeing. Being part of this initiative can be an engaging way to link social justice and sustainability, so interconnected when viewed from a Catholic view of creation. It is our responsibility to care for creation. Care for others is indeed care for creation in the same way as care for creation is caring for others. We, the human species, are part of creation and are stewards of creation. It is part of our relationship with God, our neighbour and creation (cf Laudato Si #66).
