Caring for Creation by Planting Trees

An open and respectful dialogue is also needed between the various ecological movements. (Laudato Si 201)

CommonSpirit is committed to open dialogue across various cultures and religions to care for humanity. To support this commitment, we build networks of respect and collegiality to foster relationships across the globe, from the Middle East to Asia to Latin America. Through these relationships, we aim to create sustainable health care systems that lead to healthier societies. One of our Muslim team members, who has family in Africa, is the Interfaith Leader for Pope Francis’ Laudato Tree, an initiative to plant 7 million trees through the heart of Africa, with the goal of rebuilding Earth’s lungs and improving quality of life for people.
