Student thesis: Master's Thesis


In the current scenario, the situation of our Common Home and the ecological issue are important issues that must be addressed, since there is a growing concern about the future of humanity, due to the constant degradation of the land. However, when talking about land degradation, it is important to have a broad and holistic perspective on what is happening around the human being and not to direct and condition the state of the land only to the environmental factor. In this way, it is important to educate humanity towards an integral ecology, with a view to fulfilling the mission that God has given to human beings to make the earth a better place, that is, to educate man in the different dimensions that make up human life. As such, the present work is the result of the teaching of the Teaching Unit «As Origens» of the 7th year at Colégio Marista de Lisboa, within the scope of the Supervised Teaching Practice and is based on biblical accounts and on the encyclical Laudato Si' presented by Pope Francis, where the importance of the practice of an integral ecology to take care of the Common House is discussed. Thus, this document exposes and addresses human dignity, integral ecology, and the importance of education and Catholic Religious Moral Education, in the construction of a society based on an integral ecology.In short, all the research carried out and the information presented are the result of the Supervised Teaching Practice provided by the Masters in Religious Sciences of the Portuguese Catholic University, where the practice is inserted. As a result of the whole conjuncture and as a way of making teaching, namely the teaching of the EMRC subject more attractive, a pedagogical proposal called ConViva is presented.
