Bishop John Arnold (Diocese of Salford) is the lead on the Environment for the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales.

In Lent 2019, Bishop John announced the Laudato Si' centre in response to the current climate crisis and Pope Francis’s call for us all to care for our common home in his document Laudato Si'.

The Archdiocese of Birmingham Climate Action group is inspired by this exciting project, which aims to make the Diocese of Salford a flagship for effective action on the environmental crisis. Helping people to tackle climate change, work towards a sustainable world and care for our common home.
