The Province of Compostela: Towards an integral ecology

The Marist Province of Compostela is moving forward in its strategic objective of raising awareness about the care of the common home in all its educational works. The eco2social Framework advocates “awakening and developing eco2social awareness from an integrative and Christian perspective that promotes solidarity, responsible consumption and sustainability,” in line with one of the calls of the 22nd General Chapter, which asks to respond to emerging needs.

In this sense, the eco2social coordinators are promoting ecological sustainability in educational communities, through the exchange of ideas, good practices, experiences, and projects in the various educational stages linked to the Sustainable Development Goals and the care of our common home. And, very soon, it will be launched the vegetable garden in kindergarten, the vertical gardens in primary school and the zero waste project.

The initiatives propose 5 main lines of action: people, planet, prosperity, peace and alliances. See here the presentation of the project, some time ago, with the participation of Br. Ernesto Sanchez, Superior General.

With the aim of sharing eco2social projects with other schools, the Province of Compostela, with its 14 schools in Castilla y León, Galicia and Asturias, has joined the Natives Platform. As a result of this alliance, Marist schools can now share their eco2social initiatives with other schools.

The medium-term objective is to make eco2social a cross-cutting awareness that permeates all activity without the need for explicit encouragement.
