Publication date: 
May 2017

The present environmental crisis has its origins in how we relate to the natural world and to our fellow human beings. Certain values are given priority over others, thereby shaping attitudes widely shared across the globe. The pope's encyclical Laudato Sí’ proposes something different, fresh ways of looking at things, a new culture, based on values that although, sadly, not always acted on, belong equally to humanism and to the Christian tradition, and that can be shared by many other ethical and religious traditions too.
