Pope Francis sent his good wishes to the XII International Media Forum on the Protection of Nature taking place in Rieti, Italy, and sponsored by the Pontifical Council for the Family and Greenaccord.

In a telegram sent through the Secretary of State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Holy Father greeted the scientists, journalists, students, and other participants taking part in the event, and welcomed the initiative, “which helps us reflect on the common responsibilities of the custodians of Creation, and of the design of God written in Nature.”

The Pope made an urgent appeal to the scientists and journalists to contribute to the raising of awareness of political institutions and citizens of the need for a lifestyle that is sustainable on the human and ecological level, and works to ensure the full realization of each person and the authentic development of Creation.
