Updates and latest meetings – HEST Ecology Cluster

 Since the last in-person meeting took place in Brussels in last November, the HEST Ecology cluster has been meeting regularly through webinars to share the developments and last updates of the different projects. The November meeting was followed by two general webinars: one on the 25th of January and another one on the 20th of March. Both discussions showed that the group is highly motivated and that the development of the projects is on the right track.

 Moreover, with the purpose of furthering the group’s work on the research project on food waste, a subgroup was created. In this group four different dimensions are being considered: social, theological, philosophical and scientific, and each of them is represented by one member of the group. The last meeting of the subgroup took place the 1st of February. During this webinar, the group shared their comments and thoughts on a paper written by Edmond Grace, SJ and María Verdugo from JESC on the social aspect of food waste and stressed the importance of looking into the idea of guilt and considering the possibility of incorporating psychology studies to this research. The group discussed the next steps to follow and prepared a short summary in order to present all the information to the general group during the next webinar.

 One of the main results of these webinars has been the materialization of the Beirut meeting in November. The HEST Ecology cluster will meet in-person in Beirut from the 15th to the 19th of November. However, this 4th meeting of the group will not be an ordinary meeting, since the last two days a workshop bringing together the food waste project and the Living Laudato Si’ project will be held. During this workshop other HEST groups, organizations and experts on the topic will also participate. In order to prepare for this exciting and promising event, where the first tangible results of the cluster will be presented, the group has decided to focus on the research project, and therefore, a few more subgroup meetings will take place before November. Finally, the work on the Living Laudato Si’ project continues and more reflections have been added (some of then can be read here).

 The next general webinar will be on Wednesday, May 15th, from 15:30 to 17:00. The subgroup on food waste will meet on Wednesday, May 22nd, from 15:30 to 17:00.
