Developing a Whole School Approach to Ecological Thinking and Faith in Action (BCE)
Pope Francis highlights the importance of ecology within our Catholic faith tradition. There is a clear and strong mandate from scripture and the papal encyclical, Laudato Si: On Care for Our Common Home for us to be stewards of God’s creation. But, where do we start on this journey?
This course provides resources and examples of how to embed ecological thinking and practices at a whole school level. It provides a strategic approach to enacting the key messages of Laudato Si along with ways to build capacity and bring colleagues along with you on this journey.
