The recent papal encyclical on climate change and the environment, Laudato Si, provides support for environmental education that enables people to reflect on their personal behaviours, e.g. Chapter 6: "... education aimed at creating an “ecological citizenship” is at times limited to providing information, and fails to instil good habits. The existence of laws and regulations is insufficient in the long run to curb bad conduct, even when effective means of enforcement are present. If the laws are to bring about significant, long-lasting effects, the majority of the members of society must be adequately motivated to accept them, and personally transformed to respond."
