The Forum Thematic Group on Development and the Environment works together to exchange expertise and create synergies in view of the common good, which necessarily is based in the development of each person, and the whole person. The rich grassroots experience of the participating organizations offers a solid foundation upon which the group considers today's challenges and proposes creative solutions.
The Group on Development and Environment works together through the sharing of expertise, video conferencing and collaborative projects to realize a vision of development rooted in Catholic Social Teaching. Laudato Si' and the themes of care for our common home, integral human development and integral human ecology provide platforms of action for the participating organizations, which each carry out a wide range of advocacy and development aimed projects throughout the world.
