To increase the Catholic Church’s understanding and planning of its landholdings using geographic information technologies and community involvement and work with Catholic communities in order to demonstrate how these lands can be a means for positive global environmental and social change.



Extended Mission:


We use mapping technology to reveal high-impact opportunities that will allow Church lands to function for the environmental and social greater good. We seek to promote care for creation through sustainable land-use planning that is sensitive to human ecology, environmental ecology, and economic realities. We hope to transform a sense of ownership of land into a sense of stewardship amongst communities through top-down planning efforts combined with bottom-up community involvement and education.
