The videos of the Laudato Si’ Reflection Day 2022 are now available. Last May we gathered for the 5th edition of the Reflection Day to delve deep on the rich message of the encyclical Laudato Si’. This year’s themes included reflections on environmental activism, consumerism, sustainability of the food production system and the fashion industry. We reflected and uncovered the inextricable links between loss of biodiversity and climate change and the instruments we have to protect our Common Home; we saw examples of youth leaders in putting in practice the prophetic message of Laudato Si’. Finally we reflected on the responsibility and instruments we have to make the ecological transition fair and possible for all.
