Journey of Encounter

From GCCM to Laudato Si’ Movement

Hear the cry of the Earth and the cry of the Poor

Our new name: from ‘Global Catholic Climate Movement’ to ‘Laudato Si’ Movement’

Pope Francis is calling for action. It’s time to respond.

Pope Francis urges the world’s 1.3 billion Catholics and all people of good will to take urgent action against the injustice of the climate emergency and the ecological crisis, to protect the poor and future generations. His encyclical letter Laudato Si’ is a compelling call to care for our common home, Earth, and builds on a long history of Catholic teaching. We are building a vibrant movement to respond to Pope Francis’ call.

Laudato Si’ Movement’s 8000+ certified Animators, 800+ Member Organizations, and dozens of Chapters are active on six continents, working hard every day to bring Laudato Si’ to life
