Catholic Climate Covenant plays a key role in leading its development
Today in Rome, the Vatican’s Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development launched the much awaited enrollment phase of the Laudato Si’ Action Platform.
The Laudato Si’ Action Platform 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. Catholic Climate Covenant plays a central role in the platform’s development as a member of the parishes and dioceses working group, and U.S. community central animator.
The enrollment in the LSAP begins on the World Day of Prayer for the Poor, a deeply meaningful symbol of the Platform’s commitment to serving those who are most vulnerable to the consequences of our socio-ecological crisis. It is also a powerful Gospel message, especially in the wake of the recently concluded COP26, that the transformation of the world and of our societies will begin from below and will be led by ordinary people.
This new phase of the Laudato Si’ Action Platform sees the launch of a first-ever suite of practical resources to help Catholic institutions, communities, and families along their journey towards integral ecology. It is time to act and act together!
Once enrolled, participants can make commitments to creating their own Laudato Si’ 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.
The Laudato Si’ Action Platform will help communities and individuals from each of the seven sectors across the globe to start planning and take action looking forward to achieving the seven Laudato Si’ Goals.
