Laudato Si’ and Work. For a pedagogical reflection

Serena Mazzoli

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Thinking about education as a project and path, open to personal and community accomplishment, requires considering work as a setting suitable for expressing human creativity. In a generative perspective, the encyclical Laudato Si’ by Pope Francis connects and modernizes the two fundamental dimensions of work: protecting what we are given and cultivating it so that it can become a source of experience capable of contributing to our integral development. Conferring quality on education is therefore a basic requirement for favouring the spread of respectable, satisfying, participatory occupations in the name of fraternity as the fullness of individual fulfilment with and for others in just institutions.
