For each community, progress in building the Kingdom of God will look different, as it meets different needs and embraces and encourages different gifts. To encourage your school community in this, We have some activites to offer
Imagine that it is the year 2030 and we have come together effectively to tackle our climate and biodiversity crises and our social problems. We are much better than we were at caring for all of creation. What’s more, life is more exciting than before.
How did we get here? Well, partly it was our school communities: students, parents, staff and governors coming together to re-imagine education and the role of the school in the community.
‘Let Us Dream’ is a fun creative activity to help your school imagine the future that they want to see in their local community.
Have fun. Let your imagination go wild!
How is your school living out its faith and mission? What do you already do to help others, locally and globally? And to care for our common home? What else could you do? Use this pack with your chaplaincy, governors, school council, or other groups. It can be a tool for your school development plan and a way of taking action on the Church’s Laudato Si’ goals. It can feed into existing structures or build new groups for the care of creation.
Primary schools can simplify the activity pack by just focusing on key goals such as Spirituality, Cry of Earth, Cry of Poor and Sustainable Lifestyles.
A collection of documentaries, animations and engaging video resources.
A collection of reading and study guides for Laudato Si’, Frateli Tutti and Evangeli Gaudium.

How does engaging with The Journey to 2030 help you achieve key inspection & curriculum requirements around Care of Creation?The vision of The Journey to 2030 is that caring for creation must come about as a revolution of care and innovation in our communities, helping our Church communities to be the hubs of transformational change we wish to see in the world. In the case of schools it is therefore achieved by the building of Catholic life and mission of the school, the catholic mission of education in general and education of the Catholic faith. All of which which are key framework objectives of the CIS.
A school on a Journey to 2030 shows a commitment to improve our relationships with God, neighbours and the rest of creation in striving to build the Catholic ethos and life of the school.
The Journey to 2030 website aims to provide a wealth of ways that taking environmental and social action.
