The cultural festival “Songs for Creation” will present biodiversity lost in the world and its consequences, focusing on the biodiversity problems in the artists’ and musicians’ regions.

Given the complexity of the ecological crisis and its multiple causes, we need to realise that the solutions will not emerge from just one way of interpreting and transforming reality. Respect must also be shown for the various cultural riches of different peoples, their art and poetry, their interior life and spirituality (LS #63)

During the event, the Vatican’s message for World Biodiversity Day will be spotlighted, the winners of the photo contest Laudato Si Moment will be announced, and winners of the Laudato Si Story Contest will be presented.
