B1 – One Earth: Pope Francis’ Call for an Integral Ecology

Feature Speaker – Dr. Cristina Vanin
Audience: All
Description: In his encyclical, Laudato Si’, Pope Francis calls us to develop an ecological culture in which we understand ourselves as “part of nature, included in nature, in constant interaction with it.” (LS 139) At the heart of such an ecological culture, and of this encyclical, is the notion of an integral ecology, which Pope Francis regards as applying to all aspects of our lives.
Why does this notion of an integral ecology matter today as we renew our promise to Catholic education?
