Laudato si’, or “Care for Our Common Home” (a.k.a. the Pope’s Encyclical), is an extraordinary document that speaks eloquently about the profound challenges facing the world today and calls for swift and dramatic action. The overriding issue is climate change, but not in isolation – the Pope describes how climate change is inextricably tied to social justice, the growing divide between rich and poor, and the economic institutions that perpetuate the status quo.
What does the Encyclical say? What is its potential impact? What does it mean for the Transition Town Community? How can Transition activists use it as a tool for awareness raising and action?
If you’re interested in reading, conversation, and ideas for action in response to this remarkable document, this book group is for you.
6-8 sessions, starting Thursday Sept 24. Locations will vary, so you must RSVP! Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up, or if you have questions.
The encyclical is available for free – you can download it here.
