Laudato Si’ - Ecological Education and Spirituality 4

210. Whereas in the beginning it [environmental education] was mainly centred on scientific information, consciousness-raising and the prevention of environmental risks, it tends now to include a critique of the “myths” of a modernity grounded in a utilitarian mindset (individualism, unlimited progress, competition, consumerism, the unregulated market).

Talk to someone about Pope Francis’ Lenten message. Respond to his calls to action.
