Integral Ecology, Multiple Vulnerabilities and Youthful Commitment


Our observatory, which has just been set up at the Faculty of Social Sciences of the Pontifical Gregorian University aims to promote the values of the Pope Francis’ Encyclical Letter on Care for our Common Home (LS). The Observatory aims to deepen the teaching offered by the Encyclical itself, whose correct and effective application represents a «great cultural, spiritual and educational challenge [… that ] will demand that we set out on the long path of renewal» (LS, n.202). In fact, LSO aims to develop both a continuous scholarly work (philosophical, theological and social) on LS, while helping to deepen its implementation from a pastoral, educational and operational point of view.
The LSO also intends to respond to the pope’s request to “network” and to open transdisciplinary paths, exercised with wisdom and creativity in the light of Revelation, illuminating “new ways of relating to God, to others and to the space around us, and inspiring fundamental values” (Pope Francis, Evangeliigaudium, n.74: Spanish version). In this context, the Observatory’s activities will include organizing seminars and conferences on specific topics, such as the present one.
