To spread the message of Laudato Si’ among the young people of Latin America through rock music. This is the goal of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences and Argentine singer Charly Alberti, who met the Pope during the General Audience on Wednesday.
“As a musician”, Alberti told our newspaper, “I founded the Revolución 21 Foundation to contribute to sustainable development in Latin America through the rediscovery of its natural and man-made resources”. This project involves “the participation of qualified experts in various areas of environmental problems”, he said, explaining the initiative which was created in collaboration with Archbishop Marcelo Sánchez Sorondo, President of Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences. “Rock music”, said Alberti, “has a spontaneous style which strikes a chord with many young people, who — by nature — are especially receptive to issues of respecting the environment. In the same way, Pope Francis’ style is direct, clear and well understood by the younger generations who are listening to him carefully”.
