The CAFOD Live Simply Award
The Live Simply award is an opportunity for our school community to respond to the Church’s call to live simply, sustainably and in solidarity with the world’s poorest. It is an invitation to follow in the footsteps of Jesus who lived and preached a simple life, and to take meaningful action on the ecological crisis we face today. The ecological crisis is a complex crisis that includes both the social crisis (global poverty, injustice, social inequality) and the environmental crisis (climate change, species loss, pollution of land, sea and air).
Through the LiveSimply award scheme we will:
• Learn about the connection between their faith and the environmental and social crises
• Respond with faith inspired actions
• Be empowered as active citizens to bring about positive change
This work takes time, this is why the Live Simply award is designed as a journey for our school to take throughout the year, to help your students to find ways of living more simply, helping them to grow and flourish as individuals.
