Laudato Si’ Goals

The Laudato Si’ Action Platform was developed in response to Pope Francis’ call. This seven-year journey to global sustainability and spiritual conversion offers resources to help Catholic organizations all over the world and “all men and women of good will” to generate plans to accomplish seven Laudato Si’ Goals:

Response to Cry of the Earth

A call to protect our common home for the wellbeing of all, as we equitably address the climate crisis, biodiversity loss, and ecological sustainability.

Response to Cry of the Poor

A call to promote eco-justice, aware that we are called to defend human life from conception to death, and all forms of life on Earth.

Ecological Economics

Acknowledging the economy is a sub-system of human society, which itself is embedded within the biosphere–our common home.

Adoption of Sustainable Lifestyles

Grounded in the idea of sufficiency, and promoting sobriety in the use of resources and energy.

Ecological Education

Re-thinking and re-designing curricular and institutional reform in the spirit of integral ecology in order to foster ecological awareness and transformative action.

Ecological Spirituality

Helps us to “discover God in all things,” both in the beauty of creation and in the sighs of the sick and the groans of the afflicted, aware that the life of the spirit is not dissociated from worldly realities.

Community Resilience and Empowerment

Envisage a synodal journey of community engagement and participatory action at various levels.
