Ecostream: Links to Ecological Action

“Our insistence that each human being is an image of God should not make us overlook the fact that each creature has its own purpose. None is superfluous. The entire material universe speaks of God’s love, his boundless affection for us. Soil, water, mountains: everything is, as it were, a caress of God. The history of our friendship with God is always linked to particular places which take on an intensely personal meaning; we all remember places, and revisiting those memories does us much good. Anyone who has grown up in the hills or used to sit by the spring to drink, or played outdoors in the neighbourhood square; going back to these places is a chance to recover something of their true selves.” (Laudato Si’, 84) (Photo: S Miclat)

Ecostream is an online resource and reference system developed as part of Ecojesuit’s commitment to the Jesuit mission on Reconciliation with Creation.

Since 2015, it has been a platform for sharing ongoing initiatives in ecology and sustainability.

With the development of the Ecojesuit themes which are five ecological priorities for an integral ecology developed during the Ecojesuit gathering in Bonn in November 2017, Ecostream is focusing its contents on these five Ecojesuit themes:

  • Disaster Risk Reduction and Water
  • Energy and Fossil Fuel Divestments
  • Organic Farming and Land Use Change
  • Lifestyle Initiatives using Sustainable Development Goals from
    Local to Global
  • Education and Solidarity

A wide array of online brochures, articles, and other publications are available, meticulously organized into dozens of sub-themes. Links to partner organizations and a directory of hundreds of Jesuit higher education institutions classified according to the six Conferences is also provided.

By communicating the actions and advocacies of Jesuit institutions and communities around the world, it is hoped that Ecostream will generate and contribute to dynamic discussions on ecological concerns, help institutions engage in new activities and learn how others are taking action, lead to active links and partnerships for more effective and innovative solutions to heal Our Common Home, and result in the much deeper process of personal and social transformation.
