MOGCThe newsletter of the Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns (MOGC) has published "Ecological conversion: Called to hope, spurred to action", a response to the papal encyclical Laudato Si', along with a statement from Faith-Economy-Ecology-Transformation (FEET), "A call to integrate faith, ecology and the global economy". FEET is a loose coalition of mostly faith-based organizations working to "create a human economy that fits within Earth’s ecological boundaries, more authentically serves human needs and builds community."

Both documents offer insights, reflections and suggest a policy platform that moves toward the Pope's vision expressed in Laudato Si’.

Future editions of the newsletter will will look at the encyclical from the perspective of FEET’s four pillars - key areas where change is needed.

The Huffington Post also reports that Muslim scholars and environmental advocates from about 20 countries on Tuesday. 18 August, called for a global phase-out of greenhouse gas emissions by mid-century, the first of its kind from Islamic leaders, joining other faith groups in calling for climate change action.
