Abstract [en]

The article deals with the impact of the Encyclical Laudato Si by Pope Francis on the various dimensions of economic and social transitions aimed at a better future, but especially on the transition to a Green Economy in respect of mitigating climate change and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The pandemic associated with the coronavirus disease outbreak in 2019 is also expected to accelerate the Encyclical’s impact in a post-pandemic world striving for greater environmental and social justice as well as inclusion and equality. The paper reports on a research survey and text analysis conducted to ascertain whether the Encyclical will have the enduring impact anticipated and whether that would accelerate achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, fulfilment of the undertakings in the Paris Agreement on mitigating climate change and support for the Fridays for Future school strikes as well as other political and civil society events aimed at protecting the environment. The research results demonstrate society is ready to accept a new economic system based on greater equality and social justice—much like the notion of Inclusive Capitalism proposed by Pope Francis in 2016, based on the Laudato Si and that this will provide momentum in transitioning to the Green Economy.
