In this issue of Open Space, we draw on the reflections shared in three webinars held between May and June of this year (2020) to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Pope Francis' encyclical, Laudato Si': On Care for our Common Home. In the Hebrew tradition, Jubilee is a time for righting our relationships with others – to free those held in captivity, to let the Earth rest and regenerate, and to ensure a just distribution of the Creator’s gifts so that all may have the means to live and thrive. In different ways, the pieces reflect on the challenge of changing the way we relate to one another and the wider Earth community, calling us to a deep metanoia – a change of heart, an ecological conversion.
