New radio programme to raise awareness of the dangers of climate change

Tuesday 2 February 2016, by SIGNIS

Bogota, Brussels, February 2nd, 2016 (Agenzia Fides/SIGNIS). The Pan-Amazon Ecclesial Network (REPAM) is launching a new programme: an educational radio programme, which allows you to know, understand and find solutions to environmental, social and ecological, cultural and political problems.

The note sent to Fides by REPAM informs that the radio series "Laudato Sì" is a popular version of Pope Francis’ encyclical, in a language that is understood by all. It develops the core idea that climate change is destroying Mother Earth and its consequences bring terrible damage to all living beings, especially to men and women.

It consists of about 20 programmes of 10 minutes each. All have the same goal: to raise awareness of what "ecological citizenship" means, stressing the urgent need to change course and overcome the patterns of consumption, the culture of waste, the model of technocratic civilization, commodified and ambitious, that is not sustainable. The programme is aimed at students, teachers, catechists, journalists and families; it can be heard and discussed at home and in social groups.

You can listen to it here (in Spanish).
