Conference events included a visit to Highgrove Organic Gardens, located at the private estate of the Prince of Wales, where conference participants toured the property and learned about recycling and composting efforts. Participants also met with the Prince of Wales at his residence, and Reverend Cortés had the opportunity to speak with him about the particular interests of the Hispanic community. Specifically, they discussed the need to involve the Hispanic faith community more intensively in environmental initiatives, and the Prince of Wales expressed interest in exploring ways to assist Esperanza in that effort.

ABOUT ESPERANZA’S CLIMATE CHANGE INITIATIVE: Esperanza launched their climate change initiative at the 2008 National Hispanic Prayer Breakfast and Conference, with the mission that we are called as God’s people to care for the creation he has given to us to inhabit. The conversation about the environment and "going green" often happens in exclusive circles that do not include low-income or minority people.
