Day 2: MYM Enviro Challenge 2015
So remember yesterday you were challenged to pick one habit to change? You're probably thinking, 'Oh no, we are really doing this challenge thing aren't we.' With any thought about changing habits, comes a need to explore the why. Figuring out the why can help lead to a change of heart and a growing awareness. As Pope Francis says in the recent Encyclical 'Laudato Si':
209. An awareness of the gravity of today’s cultural and ecological crisis must be translated into new habits...
In those countries which should be making the greatest changes in consumer habits, young people have a new ecological sensitivity and a generous spirit, and some of them are making admirable efforts to protect the environment. At the same time, they have grown up in a milieu of extreme consumerism and affluence which makes it difficult to develop other habits. We are faced with an educational challenge."
Educational challenge? Accepted!
Today learn a new fact to share with your fellow MYM compadres about one environmental issue you care about or are interested in. For some inspiration check out the video we played at the Sydney Exchange Night!
