Ecojesuit is putting up this guidance map to the different parts of the environment encyclical of Pope Francis, Laudato si’, for readers who wish to engage with this document in terms of human development perspectives but who may not share the same faith convictions. We are opening up a way to engage with people who are in development professions and practitioners who reckon with sustainable development in their work activities. We want to respond to the interest to read Laudato Si’ not in its entirety yet want to get to the substance that affects daily lives and work.
As such, we navigate through Laudato si’ with brief descriptions of specific chapters, and not necessarily following its numerical chronology, and relating some passages with other people’s comments on the topic tackled. We hope that you find this useful as we struggle to respond to the call for action in caring and praising our common home through an integral ecology.
