Next HEST Event - Ecology

08 Jun 2018;
01:00PM - 02:30PM
Webinar Cluster Ecology

First webinar of the HEST Ecology Cluster

During their in-person meetings in Madrid and Bonn, the members of the Ecology Cluster developed a clear idea about their favorite way of working together: they wanted to preserve the good team spirit, the close interaction and intense discussions, but at the same time they felt it was necessary to reduce the travel cost for both the participants and the environment. For that reason they decided to intenify their cooperation via three online workshops (or webinars) and one personal meeting per year.

The first of these webinars took place on March 9th. After José Carlos Romero had guided the group through the technical details of the webinar and the HEST website, the group focused on two issues: sharing their personal reflections on “Living Laudato Si“ and – based on these findings – how to continue with their action plan and research projects. During the personal reflections, it became clear that Pope Francis` encyclica is not so much a roadmap that explains what must be done in order to save the environment, but a precious orientation how to do it. The participants decided to collect further feedback on “Living Laudati Si“ and to elaborate these findings as they can serve as a valuable orientation for both researchers and activists, for clergy men, politicians and concerned citizens alike.
