The urgent challenge to protect our common home includes a concern to bring the whole human family together to seek a sustainable and integral development…Humanity still has the ability to work together in building our common home. Young people demand change. They wonder how anyone can claim to be building a better future without thinking of the environmental crisis and the sufferings of the excluded. (Laudato Si’ 13)

On April 22 the world commemorates the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, which is more important now than ever. This year the COVID-19 pandemic takes precedence, and presents a challenge with huge economic and social consequences.
