In the first edition of Open Field, Eamon Ryan talks to Jane Mellett, a pastoral worker from Dublin and project co-ordinator of Our Common Home, an initiative focussed on greening the World Meeting of Families, which coincides with Pope Francis’ first visit to Ireland.

Eamon and Jane talk about life as a pastoral worker in Cherry Orchard, Dublin; the role of the church in addressing climate change; what the pope’s visit means for the non-religious; greening the practice of pilgrimage; and Mellett’s work with victims of child labour in India.
