Faith-based Environmental Interest Group
Badger Catholic’s Vita Pura is a Catholic student group at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, that seeks to grow in holiness by pursuing the pure Christian life — particularly by fostering simplicity and by growing in awareness of our relationships with each other, with our neighbors around the world, and with God’s creation. Through the community events, resolutions, and encounters with God’s creation, they seek to promote restoration and growth of authentic human culture. Topics of discussion include morality, meaningful relationships among local ecosystems and communities, economics on a human scale, and simple living. Vita Pura fosters a culture of production, not consumption, and of being, not having.
