5. Taking Action

Taking Action

For your final assessment, consider what opportunities you might provide your students to reflect on their relationship with creation and the messages of Laudato Si?

Some activities you could consider which could be undertaken at home or school include:

  • providing a prayer or meditation and asking to students to go out into nature to read and reflect

  • providing stimulus material (e.g video clips) and asking students to reflect on their role in caring for creation

  • Asking students to consider what actions that can take within their homes e.g. a waste, water or energy audit or create a garden in their backyard

  • Creating a plan for action within the classroom. A class charter, an action plan, a waste routine etc.

  • Providing a collaborative space for students to share their ecological actions with each other etc….
