NEW! Laudato Si’ Action Platform
On Nov. 14, 2021 the Vatican's Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development announced the launch of the next phase of the Laudato Si’ Action Platform.
Inspired by Laudato Si', The Platform is a new and groundbreaking faith-driven and ecological initiative to engage the Catholic Church in a seven-year journey to global sustainability and spiritual conversion. The Platform is a collaboration between the Vatican and a coalition of Catholic organizations across the world, including in the United States.
You are invited to embark on this effort along with CHA and others in the U.S. Catholic community, as we join our brothers and sisters around the world. You can register your institution, community, or family’s engagement between Nov. 14, 2021, and April 22, 2022 (Earth Day.) By registering you will have access to resources to develop your action plan and gather metrics of your progress. In his Nov. 14, 2021 Sunday Angelus address, Pope Francis urged all to address the toll the environmental crisis is taking on the earth and the poor, "I encourage those with political and economic responsibilities to act now with courage and foresight."
Please contact Indu Spugnardi if you have questions about the platform or how to participate.
