On Wednesday 4 October, Pope Francis published a new apostolic exhortation on ecology, “Laudate Deum”, eight years after his encyclical “Laudato si'”. A few months ahead of COP 28, he renews his cry for the safeguarding of Creation and launches an appeal to Christians, leaders and “all people of good will on the climate crisis”. A short, hard-hitting text, to be read in full at this address:
To encourage educational communities to discuss this exhortation from Pope Francis, the OIEC has put together an exhibition of 16 panels presenting carefully selected passages from the encyclical, illustrated with photos. The quotations from Pope Francis are designed to stimulate concrete collective and creative reflection on the commitment to saving the planet and to sketch out the contours of a genuine integral ecology.
