"An education in ecological responsibility is urgent" - Pope John Paul II

Green World Youth Day began in 2008 with an e
nvironmental international exchange and training program on 'Water for Life' organised by the Young People for Development network and the Holy Eucharist parish, St Albans in Melbourne, Australia.

Now as we approach World Youth Day 2013 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, we are pleased to see that the organisers are working very hard to make sure that this year's program is truly a Green World Youth Day!

World Youth Day goes green
