Australians aspire to be green
This year Caritas Australia launched a new initiative, the Be more Challenge. Inspired by the words of Archbishop Oscar Romero 'Aspire not to have more, but to be more', the Be more Challenge encourages Australians to take action for environmental and social justice by setting themselves 5 challenges – personal, family, local, national and global.
members of the online community also participate in an annual event – Be moreWeekend, which took place for the first time from the - 9 August 2009. Over , 35 people from across Australia committed themselves, to 'be just. be green. be more' for three days.
All of these creative actions were taken with a consciousness of our responsibility to act for climate justice and to ensure that Australia takes initiative on mitigation.
