Recently in Rome, the Vatican’s Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development launched the much awaited enrollment phase of the Laudato Si’ Action Platform. This is a Vatican-led initiative in collaboration with several partners to empower the universal Church to achieve total sustainability in the holistic spirit of integral ecology.
Once enrolled, participants can make commitments to creating their own Laudato Si’ Action Plans. Those who make the commitment will have access to tools that help them understand and evaluate where they stand along the road to integral ecology; tools to reflect on their values and the Laudato Si’ Goals; and tools to develop effective plans to achieve the Laudato Si’ Goals. Watch the Holy Father’s invitation to join below:
Additionally, the Catholic Climate Covenant has developed a national campaign and website “We’re all Part of God’s Plan(et)” to help the U.S. Catholic community engage with the Platform. This website offers tools and resources to educate, inspire and activate individuals and groups to advocate caring for the Earth.
The God’s Planet website is the home for U.S.-specific resources and news, including best practices, action plans, events and inspiring work. It is also an interactive place where you can share ideas, challenges, and opportunities, and seek further guidance and accompaniment.
