In an effort to promote ecological conversion and spread the message of Laudato Si’ in the Church, the Global Catholic Climate Movement has collaborated closely with the Office of Justice and Peace and Integrity of Creation of the Order of Friars Minor General Curia, successfully carrying out several campaigns in recent years. Some of these past collaborations include, to mention a few:

  • World Youth Day in Panama (2019).
  • Animators Training
  • Laudato Si’ Revolution

To continue this collaboration in a formal way, the Memorandum of Understanding has been jointly signed, a document that reaffirms their commitment and collaboration of both parties to realize new strategies.

Both organizations maintain an inspiration centered on Gospel values and the vision of St. Francis and Clare of Assisi, as well as a vision that focuses on environmental and social justice, among other common elements.

In addition to the conviction of caring for our common home, they share areas of collaboration that will allow them to strategically advance and identify potential needs for mutual support between the two organizations.

This commitment implies working together to promote effective programs, maintaining constant communication and ongoing training, which will be fundamental elements in this process.

With faith and enthusiasm, we trust that collaborative work will lead us, hand in hand with God, to achieve our common and particular goals thanks to the actions derived from this initiative to care for our common home.
