The area of Scholas Laudato involves education and ecology, or in other words, the care of the “common house”, a concept inspired by the Encyclical Letter Laudato Si ́, from which this area takes not only its name but the principles and values in it described.
The reestablishment of the educational pact in the current times cannot be considered without incorporating the issue of environmental protection and less without the collective awareness it implies. It is necessary to promote and encourage the culture of the encounter that goes through the return to an education connected to the land, its fruits and the communities that depend on it.
The mission of Scholas Laudato is to promote an inclusive vision of education that incorporates sustainability as a fundamental dimension and fosters citizen participation in the light of environmental ethics.
Among its objectives are to promote the culture of the encounter between students of rural schools and urban schools for dialogue and the ongoing commitment of projects; support and train young people in rural and urban areas to disseminate and promote in their communities pedagogical models of ecological awareness; and Involve young people in the work of caring for the environment beyond urban environmental models, putting them in contact with productive and creative processes in rural areas.
