Over the past three years, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has created a growing online library of resources related to environmental stewardship and conservation topics. These readily accessible tools are valuable in learning about the doctrine, themes and messages from the LDS standards works, reviewing important statements and inspirational messages by Church leaders, highlighting practical means to put faith-based environmental values into action, and teaching and instructing both Church members and those outside of our faith about this important topic.

- See http://www.mormon.org/
values/community-service for a concise statement of LDS values related to the environment and being “good citizens of the earth”
This past summer, the Church—using video clips provided by Church members across the globe—produced the short but inspiring video, “Our Home.” The video is available on the YouTube Mormon Channel http://youtu.be/
