Laudato Si Group
This is an exciting new group in school where will have the opportunity to put into action the Pope's mission to look after our environment.
This information is from the Laudato Si' website itself.
The schoolyard and classroom play an important role in nurturing core ecological values. Environmental education is particularly vital, as it shapes how our younger generation care for our common home.
In Laudato si’, Pope Francis highlights the important role that education plays:
There is a nobility in the duty to care for creation through little daily actions, and it is wonderful how education can bring about real changes in lifestyle. Education in environmental responsibility can encourage ways of acting which directly and significantly affect the world around us, such as avoiding the use of plastic and paper, reducing water consumption, separating refuse, cooking only what can reasonably be consumed, showing care for other living beings, using public transport or car-pooling, planting trees, turning off unnecessary lights, or any number of other practices.
