#act4ourcommonhome
A home for all? Be a protector this Season of Creation.
 
Amid the ongoing crises that shake our world, it is more pressing than ever to increase our efforts on behalf of our common home.
 
The theme of the 2021 Season of Creation which starts today, 1 September, the first day of Spring and World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation and ends on 4 October, Feast Day of St. Francis of Assissi, is:
 
“A home for all? Renewing the Oikos* of God.” (* Oikos or eco- ancient Greek word for ‘family, home, household’).
 
How can we take action and safeguard a place for all who share our common home? Pitch our tent and welcome all? 
 
The Kildare Education Ministries Living Justice - Living Peace paradigm and our core values inspire us to: 
🏡 Learn with wonder -  be aware of the beauty, complexity and fragility of creation. 
🏡 Lead with courage - have the courage and resilience to move against currents of privilege and disrupt injustice. 
🏡 Live with compassion - recognise the common humanity of all people and sacred dignity of all life on Earth.

We would love you to share your photos over the coming weeks of all actions happening to care for our common home; gardens growing, treading gently with resources, being in nature, reaching out to people in need … (Covidsafe, of course). 
 
Use the hashtag #act4ourcommonhome; it unites us with many Catholic schools across Victoria.

This Sunday is World Environment Day.

“The 2022 World Environment Day campaign #OnlyOneEarth calls for collective, transformative action on a global scale to celebrate, protect and restore our planet.” (UN Environment Program).

How can we celebrate, protect and restore our planet?

To re-energise and reboot our efforts after our two disrupted COVID years, interested staff and students held a meeting this week to discuss what action we could take.

Check out this Practical Guide for some great inspiration we can all apply to help protect our earth:

Well done to our Sunshine Coast students from unitycollegecaloundra & stjohnscollegenambour who joined the sunshinecoastcouncil 's 2021 Schools Beach Clean Up, contributing to the almost 100kg of rubbish removed from 14 beaches across the region in time for turtle nesting season.

Unity College teacher Anne Duncan said as part of their Senior Religion and Ethics class, the students researched the many ways they can learn from and assist the world's environmental heroes in the unit 'Heroes and Role Models', reflecting on the Pope's call in Laudato Si': Call for our Common Home.

"It is the Church’s most profound clarion call, for us all to be protectors of creation and the poor. The Holy Father has called for a new global solidarity, where all individuals, communities and governments play an essential part in taking care of our earth and global family," Anne said.

"As a response to this call, our students partnered with Sunshine Coast Council in the Beach Clean-up as well as collecting and recycling bottles, cans and poppers in the Containers for Change program.

"The students were keen to support both initiatives and are committed to play their part through daily choices in reducing and recycling rubbish in our local area. Each student then produced a podcast showcasing international environmental heroes and the many ways that we can all make small changes to improve the health of our natural world."
