Interfaith Power & Light and the Catholic Climate Covenant have teamed up teamed up to bring you our Pope Francisâ€™ encyclical Climate Action Kit – a guide for communities of all faiths. As noted in the kit, â€œPutting the ecological encyclical into action can be simple. Youâ€™ll receive a step-by-step guide to understand and apply the encyclical, shrink your carbon footprint, and advocate for policy change.â€
In the kit you’ll be guided through these 5 steps to take climate action:
1. Understand the encyclical
Find and select quotes for your use from the Popeâ€™s 184-page encyclical on ecology. Additionally, find links to the encyclical news coverage and analysis.
2. Talk about it

3. Stand with Pope Francis
Stand with Pope Francis by adding your name to pledges provided by
Catholic Climate Covenant and Interfaith Power & Light.
4. Start a team, go green
Find inspiration and tips for forming a green team, cutting your carbon footprint, and saving money that can be used to advance your mission.
