Wollongong Environment Network

In Laudato Si’, Pope Francis has addressed all people throughout the world to care for our common home, calling us all to “cooperate as instruments of God for the care of creation” and to have an ecological conversion.

Catholic Education Diocese of Wollongong takes seriously this responsibility to respond to Pope Francis’ prophetic call. Engagement with eco-spirituality, environmental education and action is a key component of our mission, of being Catholic and is viewed as “core business”, not an “optional or a secondary aspect of our Christian experience” (LS n217)

The Wollongong Environment Network (WEN) is an initiative of the Catholic Education Office that aims to support school communities to respond to Laudato Si’ and implement environmental stewardship and sustainability.
