Showing Our Love To The Next Generation

A few years ago I was taking part in a faith based inter-generational event on environmental issues. One of the young women present expressed her deep felt gratitude for the presence of those of us from the "older" generation. She said she hears so often that the world is counting on the next generation of young people to do things differently with the earth, "But", she said, "we can't do it alone. We need you to be with us." At that moment it struck me how important it is to show young people that we are taking this seriously and that we are willing to do something. This could be a wonderful way to express our love to them, to show them that we care so much about their future that we are ready to address some challenging aspects of the present. We are called to love! We have begun a journey together for the Corporate Stance on Climate Change in view of the 21st Global Conference on Climate Change in Paris in December of this year. This action that we are inviting you to is a critically important part of helping Canada to play a positive role at the Paris Conference.
