LAUDATO SI’ ACTION PLATFORM
The Laudato Si’ Action Platform is a unique collaboration between the Vatican, an international coalition of Catholic organizations, and “all men and women of good will.” (LS 3) Taking a truly ground-up approach, it is rooted in the strengths and realities of communities around the world, empowering all to take “decisive action, here and now” as we journey towards a better future together. (LS 161)

Pope Francis urges us to make “courageous choices” toward creation of “the future we want: a more inclusive, fraternal, peaceful and sustainable world.”
The response to the ecological crisis takes a profound act of care. The Laudato Si’ goals (illustrated below) guide our actions. Their holistic approach supports a spiritual and cultural revolution.
