  • What kind of world…

    ... do we want to leave to those who come after us, to children who are now growing up? This question does not have to do with the environment alone and in isolation; the issue cannot be approached piecemeal.

    - Laudato Si (May You be praised), Pope Francis

    What is the purpose…
  • There are certain …

    ... environmental issues where it is not easy to achieve a broad consensus. But I want to encourage an honest and open debate, so that particular interests or ideologies will not prejudice the common good.

    - Laudato Si (May You be praised), Pope Francis

    Any approach…
  • Recent World Summits…

    - Laudato Si (May You be praised), Pope Francis

    Recent World Summits…
