Another world is needed- together it is possible!
With its official opening on Tuesday July 26, the Laudato Si’ Eco-Youth Festival at Park Krowodorksi in Krakow aims at opening a space for reflection and action on climate change and the respect for the environment inspired by the Encyclical Laudato Si’.
The Encyclical Letter ‘Laudato sì’ had a huge impact and sparked a lively debate around its contents. Indeed, the document focuses on the crisis of the ‘common home’ of humanity, identifying the problems and indicating the path.
CIDSE’s Joint Action Campaign ‘Change for the Planet – Care for the People’ will be present at World Youth Day 2016 in Krakow, Poland (25 – 31 July). The campaign will be present in the activities of the Laudato Si’ Eco-Youth Festival held by the Global Catholic Climate Movement (GCCM).
In June 2015, CIDSE welcomed the Pope's hope for a profound "ecological conversion" and advocated for a fair and binding global agreement on climate change at the UN Climate Conference (COP21).
