Abstract/Description

Pope Francis’ Laudato Si’ - on the Care for our Common Home (LS) is the first extensive Papal document focused on the environment. In May 2021, the Vatican announced a Laudato Si Action Platform (LSAP), a seven-year process calling universities and six other sectors to action on seven LS goals that integrate the UN Sustainable Development Goals. UD was invited to join the international universities network working team. This session is led by students, staff, and faculty members of UD’s LSAP working group.

We’ll give an overview of the LSAP vision, elements, and process and its connections with the UD mission, UD's Marianist identity, and the Vatican’s Global Education Compact.

We’ll also explore connections the LSAP initiative is creating on campus and with other universities globally.

Finally, we’ll explore with you the ways the LSAP can engage all facets of campus life and promote student participation in addressing the urgent climate crisis.

Goals for Attendees

1) Connect work people are already doing with the LSAP. 2) Affirm and evaluate present actions and plan future steps through a combined Laudato Si/UD mission and values framework. 3) Explore how UD can best grow our living out of Laudato Si. 4) Share ideas for what we want to accomplish (individually and collectively) at UD in the next seven years.

Comments

This is a time-appropriate session, as the Laudato Si Action Platform website fully launches November 14, 2021 into a year of planning goals for the subsequent 5 years. We want to broaden awareness and engagement in the campus community and share how the LSAP is an opportunity to deepen in understanding our Catholic and Marianist identity and application to this critical, integrated need of our time.
