“bring the whole human family together . . . for we know that things can change” (Laudato Si’ 13)

Laudato Si’ calls us toward sustainability in the spirit of integral ecology. With profound care for each other, our Creator, and all creation, we are building a better future together.


A journey towards full sustainability in the holistic spirit of integral ecology

Our Journey Together

Pope Francis has invited us all on a world-changing journey that is both a gift and a call to action a journey that unites us with one another in a holistic, integrated approach to put integral ecology into practice in our lives.

We are honored to come alongside you with tools and information, a guiding hand and a listening ear.

In the spirit of interconnectedness and preservation of our common home, participants have generously shared their reflections and plans —concrete action steps to help inform and inspire you in fulfillment of your Laudato Si’ Goals. You are warmly invited to add your own unique thoughts and experiences to this rich tapestry of voices.

We also offer you an interactive map pinpointing fellow organizations and working groups, parishes and dioceses, religious orders and congregations, and universities and schools around the globe and in your community. A guide or mentor is always only a click away.

There is also a carbon footprint calculator at the bottom of this page to remind us of the work entrusted to us yet to be done.

Your journey through Laudato Si’ is the journey of all creation. It is our great hope that the Laudato Si’ Action Platform and all its vibrant participants and contributors will be beacons of light every step of the way.
