Faith, Economy and Ecology

NETWORK recognizes that addressing the challenges of environmental devastation and climate change will require fundamental changes in our global economic system.


In line with our mission as a Catholic leader in the global movement for justice and peace, NETWORK’s issue agenda is informed by the principles of Catholic Social Teaching and the lived experience of real people.
