Laudato Si, 14

“I felt that I was truly on a mission to bring the message of Laudato Si’ to our parishioners, since no one else had. I learned how important one person can be.”
– Jean, Laudato Si’ Animator

You Can Do This

Laudato Si’ Animators are champions of Catholic action on climate change. Apply now to join the next class of Animators, starting in spring 2019 with a capstone project in April 2019.

No expertise is needed.  People from all backgrounds and walks of life have what it takes to share the message of creation care with their communities.  The climate crisis affects all of us, and we’re all needed to solve it.

The Laudato Si’ Animators program follows the “See, Judge, Act” model, and includes three webinars with leaders in science and theology. Webinars will be offered at two different times for those in different time zones, and recorded as well. You will also have the opportunity to discuss all that you’ve learned with other Animators in our online discussion forum, and exercises throughout to begin the practice of sharing and living Laudato Si’, with a final project on Earth Day. The full schedule:

Week of March 11
“See: The Science of Climate Change and Solutions”

Week of March 18
“Judge: The Catholic Response to Climate Change”

Week of March 25
“Act: Change in Our Lives and Our Communities”

Additional support will be offered between the final webinar and the week of Earth Day to ensure a successful project.  Thousands of leaders have joined this program and continue to live Laudato Si’. We hope you will join us!
