Since Pope Francis' encyclical 'Laudato Si': on care for our common home' was released in 2015, there has been a groundswell of support for the pope's call for an "ecological conversion", a change of mind and heart about how we relate to our world and its resources.

Talk 1 - ‘Pope Francis’ call for ‘an ecological conversion’. What does this mean for all of us?

The Laudato Si Pledge.

The three components:
- Pray for and with Creation
- Live More Simply
- To advocate to protect our Common Home

Presenter: Fr Neil Darragh

The Laudato Si Pledge
Talk 2 - A key concept in 'Laudato Si' is that of an 'integral ecology' that is both realistic and respectful of the interconnectedness of all things. This talk explores the concept and how it could change our lifestyles.

Fr Neil Darragh is a priest of the Auckland Diocese, a writer and theologian with a long-term interest in eco-spirituality. He has published a book entitled 'At home in the Earth: Seeking an Earth-centred spirituality' and more recently he has edited a book entitled 'Living in the planet Earth: Faith communities and ecology".
