Gassner, F. (2018). Science and Laudato Si’ on the Paradigm Shift towards Sustainable Development. The Journal of the Macau Ricci Institute, 2. https://mrijournal.riccimac.org/index.php/en/issues/issue-2/24-science-and-laudato-si-on-the-paradigmshifttowards-sustainable-development
For sustainability researchers and global policy makers it is lucid clear that a radical turnaround of modern societies is needed to approach sustainable development paths. Pope Francis takes his stand on a basic paradigm shift in his Encyclical Letter Laudato Si’: Care for our Common Home (2015). He calls for a radical shift of mindsets and ecological and cultural conversion which are needed for sustainability and a life in dignity for all. The author compares aspects from sustainability research and Laudato Si’ and shows how science and Francis spiritual-theological take converge. Both call for the need of new mindsets and spiritual resources to nourish just life-styles and sustainable societies.
