The process invites each member and is team to have a collective reflection about how the actions already conducted, correspond to the aims of “Laudato Si” by giving an echo to the claim of the poors and the earth and to look forward to amplify the actions. This reflection is connected with four goals

– two linked to the claim of the earth : “change my behaviour as a consumer” and “tend towards zero-waists” ;

– two linked to the claim of the poors : “welcome different people” and “try to improve new ways of solidarity.”

How does it help?

In what way does this initiative enhance the formation of the laity?

It helps to take more and more conscience of the links and dependance of his way of life towards the aims of “Laudato Si”. It gives also a good key to interpretate what is often realized without real will to do it in that way.

Why is it important?

Why is this initiative important for the training and advancement of the laity in your country?

This process introduces the individual and the team to the knowledge of the duty and vocation of the laity. It is also well received as a good mean to exchange with all other people in the society and the world.

How did it start

How was this initiative developed?

It followed the event organized by the MCR called “Third Time of the retiring life” in june 2018 at Lourdes attended by more than 4000 persons. It has been choosen to give to the members some simple and basic tools near to their daily life to invest on material actions wich benefit to all. The process have been voted in october 2019 by the movement general assembly.

Benefits

Does it benefit the laity on a national or local level?

He realizes that what he does often by habit helps to improve the way of life of the persons who benefit from these actions. It is also a real contribution to the implementation of the ecological transition. The process helps to get in contact with neglected people, such as migrants, isolated who are often excluded from a social life.

The process is sustained by the results of the observation of local initiatives.

The national level receives the local reports and treat them to give a national image of the impact of all these actions.

Means and funding

Who funds the initiative? What is needed to launch this initiative?

The expenses are not very high and their accommodation is often let to the individual charity and of the local movement representation. But the national level funds the bigger projects if the local resources are not sufficient.

The most important to launch this initiative is to organize the debate and reflection inside the team to conceive the projects of action. A minimum of writing documentary is necessary to record the process realized by the team.

The national level has conceived the documents which are common to all the movement in order to be able to have global datas on a national level.

Learn more

Where can people learn more about this initiative?

The process does not need a special formation. All the experience of the movement is open to everybody. Of course, this includes answers to any question about the process.

Countries involved

Does this initiative exist in other countries?

We have no information about that, but we would be pleased to be able to share and improve the process all together around the world.

How to start?

How can this initiative be implemented in other countries?

Simply by corresponding to the local needs of the people near to everyone and to the way to develop an ecological behavior.
