Biodiversity Initiative - Salesian Provincial House, Crumlin, Ireland

Salesians in Crumlin have been thinking of ways to increase biodiversity on their grounds and make them more pollinator-friendly. In Ireland, one third of the 99 bee species are threatened with extinction, so this is a very serious issue. While there were flowerbeds already in place, the Salesian community wanted to do more to help pollinators. So, they are leaving a section of the lawn unmown, to allow flowers to grow there naturally, and have also planted native Irish wildflower seeds. They are looking forward to seeing the flowers grow and hope that they will be a great source of food for local pollinators!

Social Theatre to understand Global and local inequalities

The students of Jóvenes y Desarrollo through the project "Mobilizing through Social-Art" reflected on global and local inequalities through the use of Social Theatre. Social theatre is a powerful tool for understanding and addressing global inequalities. It is a form of theatre that aims to provoke thought and inspire action by examining social issues and promoting social change. At its core, social theatre is about telling stories that matter. This approach enabled an understanding of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and their linkages between the North and South.  View More
