In Laudato Si’, Pope Francis invites us to “discover what each of us can do” as we build a better future together. (LS 19) Responding to the call of Laudato Si’ means embracing new ways of living, as our growing awareness of the connections between all things is translated to concrete action.
The Laudato Si’ Action Platform is a unique collaboration between the Vatican, an international coalition of Catholic organizations, and “all men and women of good will.” (LS 3) Taking a truly ground-up approach, it is rooted in the strengths and realities of communities around the world, empowering all to take “decisive action, here and now” as we journey towards a better future together. (LS 161)
Action is urgently needed. Our Creator called the human family to be the steward of creation, but we have neglected that call. Our hotter, dirtier, deader planet is driving up the risk of suffering. The most vulnerable suffer above all.
At this kairos moment, we are responding to the call for healing in our relationships with God, our neighbors, and the Earth itself. Through the Laudato Si’ Action Platform, we are walking the “path to renewal” together (LS 202).
As you seek information on ways to take action, you are warmly invited to use the resources in Laudato Si’ Action Platform. You’ll find concrete, practical expertise on actions that support your progress towards the seven Laudato Si’ Goals. These resources are generously offered by a community of Catholic organisations and other partners, all working together to make the vision of Laudato Si’ a reality.
You are a co-creator of our future, and you’re invited to use any of the resources in the platform, step by step, along our shared journey to sustainability in the holistic spirit of integral ecology.
