This online conference was developed in the interest of following the Pope’s “urgent appeal for a new dialogue about how we are shaping the future of our planet”.

Our common home is in grave danger from climate change and the wider environmental crisis. Every month this year has been the hottest one on record. The faith community was VITAL in lifting up the moral call for action on climate at Paris. We cannot let this energy die away. This is a moment for us to remind ourselves why we are acting, to re-engage our communities, and to show our governments that we are still here, willing to dialogue and hungry for action.

Also, remember that hundreds of local Laudato Si’ events are taking place in different cities around the world. We are so proud and impressed with all the terrific events happening; the diversity and magnitude of these activities shows the commitment of our Catholic community to #LiveLaudatoSi. Please check our Laudato Si’ events map to see if there is anything happening in your city.

Thank you for joining Laudato Si Week. Together with other people of faith we will reaffirm to global leaders that our words are matched by our actions, and showcase our unwavering commitment to care for our Earth.

God Bless,

Christina, on behalf of the Global Catholic Climate Movement team
