Man is suddenly becoming aware that by an ill-considered exploitation of nature he risks destroying it and becoming in his turn the victim of this degradation. Not only is the material environment becoming a permanent menace-pollution and refuse, new illness and absolute destructive capacity- but the human framework is no longer under man's control, thus creating an environment for tomorrow which may well be intolerable. This is a wide-ranging social problem which concerns the entire human family. (Octogesima Adveniens, 21-1971).
Development and Peace-Caritas Canada invite us to live an ecological conversion and to take concrete actions to preserve the future of our Earth and of present and future generations. Hope to see you at the workshop!
