We have been encouraged to be good stewards of the Earth, but sometimes we don’t know where to begin. Fortunately, one of the most important things you can do to spread the message of earth stewardship is simple: talk about it.
Why is having conversations so important? Talking about environmental issues, and focusing on shared values, can help us find common ground and mutual understanding. It helps other see the connection between being a good steward of Earth and being a disciple of Jesus Christ.
You don’t need to be an expert in pollution, water conservation, climate change, or other environmental topics to share why earth stewardship is important to you.
In an effort to spread awareness of the gospel principle of Earth stewardship, we have teamed up with BYU Sustainability to keep track of every conversation we have in an initiative called Y Talk. We hope to reach one million conversations!
Have you had a conversation about sustainability, conservation, or something related to environmental stewardship? Then let us know about it! Conversations can be online, virtual, or in-person.
