We are an international collective of young people from Salesian Institutions & Organizations who are passionate about the welfare of our only planet. 

“Care of creation, our mission”, missions and integral ecology: this is the theme of 2023 Salesian Mission Day, fruit of the collaboration between the Sector for the Missions and the Sector for Youth Ministry.

They have created a booklet in which you will find many interesting insights that will consider the vast theme of integral ecology from different points of view, starting precisely from the Salesian reflection that illustrates the entire path. Each of the contributions, which are a clear example of the richness of the Church, is preceded by a quotation from Pope Francis’ Laudato si’.

2023 - A Year of Eco Action!

The ecological crisis is getting worse daily, and we realise that it is impossible to resolve this global crisis only through science and technology or even through economic means or political powers. It is not simply about climate change mitigation, adaptation, or financial commitments such as the Loss and Damage Fund agreed  upon in the latest climate conference, COP27. (Jeyaraj SJ, 2022)

The Letter

A message for our Earth

“We see what is happening, and the worst thing is that we are becoming used to it. This ‘becoming used to’ is a terrible illness.” – Pope Francis.

This documentary focuses on the encyclical letter ‘Laudato Si’ addressed to everyone that the Pope wrote in 2015. Today his message is even more urgent!

This film is presented by YouTube Originals, produced by an Oscar-winning Off The Fence Productions, in partnership with the Laudato Si’ Movement.

Social Theatre to understand Global and local inequalities

The students of Jóvenes y Desarrollo through the project "Mobilizing through Social-Art" reflected on global and local inequalities through the use of Social Theatre. Social theatre is a powerful tool for understanding and addressing global inequalities. It is a form of theatre that aims to provoke thought and inspire action by examining social issues and promoting social change. At its core, social theatre is about telling stories that matter. This approach enabled an understanding of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and their linkages between the North and South. View More

Village experience in Gujarat

The youth of Don Bosco Youth Service set out for a rural visit to Gujarat on January 26. We first set foot at Don Bosco Narukot. Our youth marvelled at the huge campus with its lush green playground, organic farm, and a variety of trees and farm animals.

 We then set out in groups of 4 to live with the tribal families from 4 different villages in Narukot. The drive to the village was scenic and enjoyable with cool breeze blowing along the way. The warm hospitality of the tribal families brought a homely feeling. One group even got invited to a wedding and witnessed the tribal ceremonies and danced to the beats of Rathvi folk music.

 We were back at the Narukot campus the next day. That evening the Salesians organized a Barbeque night for us. We relished the tandoori chicken, soup and salad prepared by Fr Rozario. It was exciting to know that the radish and lettuce leaves were picked from their very own farm and were grown organically.

Lent is a wonderful time of the year! A time to take stock of one’s life. A time of healing or making a new beginning. It is a time of repentance and resolutions. It is a time for honesty, a time to make amends, a time to make life changing decisions.

The cries of the forests and air, water, land, and the poor are the focus of the latest issues of Promotio Iustitiae (PI), a journal published by the Secretariat for Social Justice and Ecology (SJES) of the Society of Jesus since 1977 ana available online in English, Spanish, French, and Italian. 

The UN Biodiversity COP15 is vastly similar to UNFCCC COP27. Many delegates from countries all over the world attended this conference held from 7th – 19th December 2022 in Montreal, Canada.  

The birth of Jesus took place in a very modest setting. Under a shed in a manger filled with hay in the company of cattle. The starlight sky and chill in the air. Visit of the Magi from far away countries. The choirs of angels sang in joy and shepherds kept watch of the special day. Heavens came down and filled the earth.
