WHY: “Ecological education can take place in a variety of settings: at school, in families, in media, in catechesis and elsewhere. Various other social groups are also entrusted with helping to raise people’s awareness. So too is the church.
“All Christian communities have an important role to play in ecological education.” Laudato Si 213, 214
HOW: Suggested resources: “Climate of Hope” by Bloomberg and Pope (2017) This book
discusses how cities, businesses and citizens can save the planet. An inspiring must-read.

action. Dr. Michael Schuck and Dr. Nancy Tuchman (Loyola University, Chicago) recently received an award from Pope Francis for this work.
