To follow up on Pope Francis’ visit to Malta, the Archdiocese of Malta is launching a project titled: Rethink culture. is a space for respectful dialogue on complex issues shaping Maltese culture. Supported by the Vicariate for Evangelisation and hosted by Justice & Peace –Malta, discussions will take place with various people active in Maltese society about the kind of culture we are hoping to build together.

In the first episode – Four Winds of Change – we discuss Pope Francis’ address to authorities during his visit in Malta last April. In his speech he directly mentioned the numerous struggles that we are facing as a society; such as migration, good governance, peace, and human dignity.

How are these words relevant to not only the Roman Catholics in Malta, but also to the members of society who are working towards social justice? In a discussion with Andre Callus and John Paul Cauchi, two members from Moviment Graffitti, we question whether it is time to come up with a different radical economic model – one that protects mankind and the world we live in, rather than leaving it crippled and destroyed. We explore ways of building communities that are not overcome with the fear of those who are indifferent to us.

With regards to youths, we discuss how we can use the tools at hand to be encouraged when facing upcoming difficulties, as together, we continue to discover alternatives to the economic systems that are currently neglecting many people.
