Mercy Environmental Initiatives Responses 24 September

Thank you to those who have already identified Mercy Environmental Initiatives. Responses are needed by 24 September to enable Sisters Patricia Powell RSM and Mary Tinney RSM, to forward our local information to the Mercy International Association Cosmology/Sustainable Living Working Group. Can you identify persons and facilities which are making a contribution to environmental initiatives from the Mercy world?

Database of Mercy Environmental Initiatives

Sisters Patricia Powell RSM and Mary Tinney RSM, members of the Mercy International Association Cosmology/Sustainable Living Working Group, are seeking your assistance.
The Working Group believes that grassroots level is an important starting place for theological reflection leading to global action. So one of their current tasks is to develop a database of environmental initiatives from the Mercy world. A researcher will collate the information which will then form the basis of on-going work. This is a sizeable project which through Mercy M@tters, E-news, Mercy websites will enable greater insight into Mercy environmental initiatives.

Information Required

Please identify those persons and facilities which are making a contribution to environmental initiatives from the Mercy world and forward contact details in the form of mailing/email addresses, phone numbers, websites to Mary or Patricia.  It would be helpful to have a sentence indicating why you have named this contact.

Responses are needed by 24 September

Please send your information to either mary.tinney@mercy.org.au or patricia.powell@mercy.org.au by 24 September, 2011.  Many thanks for your help with this.
