Why Care? is an on online education resource produced by the Jesuit Centre for Faith and Justice, accessible at: www.whycare.ie. This educational initiative has been designed to introduce students and young people to contemporary social justice issues. This website helps to propel complex concepts of social justice from the abstract into the practical. These concepts are broken down into digestible chunks that are then explained in the modern Irish context. Focusing on social justice in general, then housing and homelessness, and crime and prison, the website provides a step-by-step introduction to understanding the many dimensions of these issues. It is hoped that the site will encourage informed debate among young people and will underline the importance of acting for social justice.
