Impact Environment

Environmental Stewardship is an approach to the earth and its resources that attends both to the demands of human freedom and flourishing and to the Biblical call for human beings to exercise caring "dominion" over creation. Environmental stewardship affirms that freedom, human flourishing, and the integrity of creation are principles that are not only compatible but also dynamically related.

Cornwall Declaration on Environmental Stewardship

The Cornwall Declaration, signed by thousands of people of faith and others of goodwill, states the principles and aspirations of creation-based Environmental Stewardship.
