Climate change and Service Learning in the light of Laudato Si…
Integral ecology is a concept introduced by Pope Francis in writing Laudatu Si (On Care for our Common Home). It is “integral” because the question of global warming that results to climate change is a shared issue of humanity. By integrating service learning in the curriculum, this can bring significant change in the preservation of the environment and reverse the effects of climate change. Service learning is introduced as an essential component in the formation of students to prepare them for lifelong learning. The aim of this study is to shed light to the understanding of Laudato Si and its relevance to climate change and service learning. The study also shows the perceptions of educators in their understanding about climate change and their response to make a better world.
