What is the CAFOD Live Simply Award?
The Live Simply award is an opportunity for our school community to respond to the Church’s call
to live simply, sustainably and in solidarity with the world’s poorest. It is an invitation to follow in the footsteps
of Jesus who lived and preached a simple life, and to take meaningful action on the ecological crisis we face today.
The ecological crisis is a complex crisis that includes both the social crisis (global poverty, injustice, social inequality) and
the environmental crisis (climate change, species loss, pollution of land, sea and air).
Through the Live Simply award scheme our children will:
• Learn about the connection between their faith and the environmental and social crises
• Respond with faith inspired actions
• Be empowered as active citizens to bring about positive change
