Planet vs. Plastics

22 April 2024

The International Day of Mother Earth is celebrated on April 22. The theme for this year is Planet vs. Plastics.

The Earth is our home and its ecosystems provide life and sustenance throughout our existence.

One of the greatest challenges of integral ecology is to understand the connections that  exist between environmental crisis and the social crisis. «There are not two separate crises, one environmental and the other social, but one single and complex socio-environmental crisis. We cannot separate the suffering from our common home, the cry of the earth, of the suffering of the people, especially the poorest. To hear the scream of creation we must necessarily listen to the cry of the poor, and vice versa, the cry of the poor cannot be fully understood if we do not relate it to the cry of creation.

Celebrating Mother Earth Day raises awareness. Being aware and raising awareness is everyone’s task, to take responsibility, educate ourselves and commit to a new, more sustainable lifestyle, human and fraternal.
