As we are an ecumenical coalition, we are sharing and creating a campaign to teach and involve people with the "Laudato si" encyclical. Our propose is to share a phrase with a reflexion according to our reality in Chile. In that sense, this text have a significant meaning to our communities to face the consequences of climate change. Also, we are joining the international calls to the care of creation. On the other hand, me, as a young woman interested in the environment, I'm working for the climate change and the relation with the faith. Because the nature is part of the creation and part of us. In that sense, my main interest is to protect the glaciers, as a resource of water for future.
