Our 6th form Religious education syllabus unpacks the themes presented in Laudato Si’, On Care for our Common Home, exploring them in a see, judge, act framework over 10 lessons and optional debate, assessment and school action planning sessions. Fully illustrated throughout it delves into our ecological and social crises through the lenses of faith, science, philosophy and spirituality. Its main aims are to allow our knowledge of reality to be connected with our values and beliefs, motivating through hope and love to act and make a meaningful change in the world.

In the United kingdom this syllabus is intended for Core RE, ages 16-18. The syllabus is also very suitable for parishes and other community settings wishing to explore Laudato Si’.

For each lesson there are presentation slides in powerpoint and pdf formats, teacher notes, lesson background information for teachers and a student workbook.
