Professor Simon Appolloni co-edited, with Rebecca Rathbone, Generation Laudato Si’: Catholic Youth on Living Out an Ecological Spirituality. It is written entirely by 40 youth (aged 17 to 35) from 20 countries, comprising the thoughts, wisdom, dreams and aspirations of a generation that wants to change how we run the economy, foster community, lead and govern, facilitate education, use and apply technology, and live among the rest of life on Earth.
But it is more than just a book. Simon was able to raise $20,000 from women/men religious groups in order to make it a multimedia project, including a website, Instagram, Twitter (@generationls), FB, and videos. The hope is to make this an ongoing call to a global conversation to foster ecological just sustainability, and hope.
