The Mercy Centre for Ecology and Justice is guided by five principles central to promoting our mission.
- The focus of ecology and justice embraces the interconnectedness and interrelatedness of God, self, others and Earth.
- The mission of the Centre is grounded in the Gospel values of justice and equality.
- The mandate is guided by relevant justice and ecology resources (i.e.Social Teachings of the Catholic Church and the Earth Charter).
- Collaboration with international, national and local networks is central to our work.
- The involvement of youth is essential in the work of ecology and justice.
