It is seven years since the publication of Laudato Si’, the papal encyclical focusing on care of our common home. Its call to action is becoming more urgent as each year passes.
What can I do this week?
For those with a little time, why not read the encyclical? It is written in an engaging way and draws on many aspect from Church teaching through to climate science.
For those with less time, why not read our brief summary articles?
International events are being organized by the Laudato Si’ Movement.
