The Laudato Si’ Action Platform team is excited to participate in World Youth Day 2023, and we have some amazing resources and events lined up for you. Let’s explore how you can get involved and make a positive impact.
What is World Youth Day 2023
World Youth Day (WYD) is a global event that brings together young people from around the world to gather with the Pope, celebrating their faith and belonging to the Church. It serves as a pilgrimage, a celebration of youth, and a means of evangelization. While rooted in the Catholic faith, WYD welcomes participants of all backgrounds.
Events: Engage, Learn, and Act
During World Youth Day 2023, team members of The Laudato Si’ Action Platform, including director John Mundell, are actively participating in discussions, workshops, and activities centered around the principles of Laudato Si’ and environmental sustainability. We invite you to join us and be a part of these transformative experiences. To find out more about the events we will be involved in, including live-streamed sessions, please visit our events page.
