For those who missed out on the online meeting on BIODIVERSITY with Fr Sean McDonagh, Columban father, on Thursday 17th February at 7.30pm, below you can watch the recording of the talk:
The upcoming UN Conference on Biodiversity in Kuming, China (COP 15) this April 2022 offers opportunities to make links between issues raised in the climate change talks in Glasgow in September 2021 and with Pope Francis’ Encyclical entitled Laudato Si—On Care for our Common Home.
“It is important that we get an accurate understanding of how serious the destruction of biodiversity is for planet Earth. As a species we need to educate ourselves about the impact of our wasteful, industrial societies and, most of all, we need to urgently devise strategies and lifestyles which will allow us to live in a more sustainable way with the rest of creation. All of us will need to be involved in shaping this sustainable lifestyle. It is but essential if we are to leave a beautiful, vibrant and fruitful planet to future generations. “ Fr Sean
