The Cluster on Ecology meets again in Brussels

 On the 20th and 21st of November, the third HEST ecology cluster in-person meeting took place in Brussels. The two-day meeting was held at the JESC offices and followed the group’s last October webinar, where the main points of the November meeting agenda had been agreed.

 From the beginning of the meeting, there was an inspiring team spirit and sense of community that provided the group with a great boost of energy and positivity for the following two days. Before the formal discussions, the group shared a nice Paella lunch allowing them to catch up and get ready for the demanding meeting of the evening.

 After the energizing lunch, the first part of the meeting began with a short presentation on JESC work and mission offered by Fr. Peter Rožič SJ, Director of JESC. José Carlos Romero, the HEST coordinator, presented an update on the HEST program and gave a brief overview on the state of the other six HEST clusters. He highlighted that the steering committee that had taken place the previous day was the most fruitful meeting they have had so far, where coordinators of each group presented what they were doing; their expectations and what they thought was not working.

Second webinar of the HEST Ecology Cluster

On June 8, the second Webinar of the HEST cluster on Ecology and Environmental Challenges took place. Once again Andreas Carlgren chaired the session.

This time, we took advantage of the gathering to continue the reflection on Laudato Si (led by Stefan Einsiedel) and to discuss the details of the future research project of the cluster (led by Richard Maroun).
Regarding the latter, two topics were revealed as the most consensual ones for the group, i.e. solid waste/food waste and air pollution/transportation.

We decided to leave the decision open for the time being and take it in our next webinar. In order to inform this important decision, a survey will be developed and distributed to collect information about the preferences and concrete expertise of the cluster member regarding these topics.

Next webinar will be on Friday, October 5th, from 13:00 to 15:00.
