Next Generation Rising: Earth Day Sunday 2019

From Creation Justice Ministries, a U.S.-based organization that offers Christian education materials to equip faith communities to protect, restore, and more rightly share God's creation.

The Earth Day resource is written to be useful year-round.

This year, Earth Day Sunday and Easter fall on the same day – April 21, 2019 – so we encourage faith communities to celebrate Earth Day when it makes sense for your community. 

The 2019 theme is "Next Generation Rising" and focuses on children and youth leading the way for creation justice. This resource will feature stories such as that of the youth who brought the Our Children's Trust climate change lawsuit against the federal government
