The Latin American Network of Jesuit Schools, FLACSI, invited all Jesuit school communities of the world to participate in the Instagram Competition #WeAreAllEarth, to celebrate Earth Day and pay tribute to our planet on April 22nd. The Society of Jesus invites us to be conscious of the fact that we live in a common home, and of the fact that we need to care for our Earth.
