This website is the home for the Laudato Si’ Action Platform.
The Laudato Si’ Action Platform will be launched in stages, with the first coming in May 2021. More information about these stages and the overall timeline is here.
The Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development warmly welcomes the universal Catholic Church and “all people of goodwill” to the project of caring for our common home and each other. Both those who are just beginning their Laudato Si’ journey and those who have been active for years are welcome to join. The platform is designed for the following sectors:
- parishes and dioceses
- educational institutions
- hospitals and healthcare centers
- organizations and groups (NGOs, lay movements, ecological communities, foundations, communications centers)
- economic entities (farms, cooperatives, businesses)
- religious orders (orders, provinces, communities)
You are welcome so simply visit and use this website as often as you’d like. If you’d like to stay informed about news and updates, please sign up. All of the Laudato Si’ Action Platform’s resources and tools will be freely and completely available to everyone. In addition, you are invited to make a clear plan toward achieving the Laudato Si’ Goals.
All action is warmly welcomed. Participants are encouraged to make progress towards the Laudato Si’ Goals in a period of no more than seven years. More information is available here.
Laudato Si’ Plans help you discern and implement your response to Laudato Si’ through a process-oriented approach. The plans can be adapted to the needs of your institution, community, or family.
Laudato Si’ Plans include discernment and reflection resources as well as guidance on impactful actions to reach the Laudato Si’ Goals. Plans offer tracking and recognition of your progress.
Detailed information about Laudato Si’ Plans will be published in October.
The Laudato Si’ Action Platform is a program and associated website that equips Catholic institutions, communities, and families to implement Laudato Si’. It is sponsored by the Vatican’s Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, and is developed with a ground-up approach in partnership with diverse Catholic people and institutions. It offers guidance and a space for all to share ideas, questions, challenges, and inspiration, since “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” (LS 141)
The Laudato Si’ Goals are the destination of our Laudato Si’ journeys. They offer guidance on the practice of integral ecology in the holistic spirit of Laudato Si’. More information is here.
Laudato Si’ Plans help you discern and implement your response to Laudato Si’ through a process-oriented approach that can be adapted to the needs of your institution, community, or family.
The Laudato Si’ Special Anniversary Year was declared by Pope Francis to run from 24 May 2020 through 24 May 2021. The Laudato Si’ Action Platform is one fruit of that joyful celebration. More information about the Special Anniversary Year is here.
