Laudato Si 166: Popular Movements

Earth from Apollo 8The encyclical letter Laudato Si is available here on the Vatican website. Praise for many environmental organizations:

166. Worldwide, the ecological movement has made significant advances, thanks also to the efforts of many organizations of civil society. It is impossible here to mention them all, or to review the history of their contributions. But thanks to their efforts, environmental questions have increasingly found a place on public agendas and encouraged more far-sighted approaches.

Not so much for international “summits.”

This notwithstanding, recent World Summits on the environment have not lived up to expectations because, due to lack of political will, they were unable to reach truly meaningful and effective global agreements on the environment.
