On 14 February, Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) and the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, presented “Our Common Home: A guide to caring for our living planet”, an illustrated booklet that connects climate change, biodiversity and sustainable resource use with the messages of Pope Francis’s 2015 Encyclical on the care for our Common Home, Laudato si’.
At a virtual launch event, on Tuesday, 14 February at 15:00 CET, the new booklet and companion website – available in English, French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish – was unveiled.
