Laudato Si Animators

Bringing Laudato Si to Life

Laudato Si Animators will promote the Laudato Si message to help turn it into action in their local communities, whether that be a parish, school, religious congregation, lay group, youth organization, retreat center, student group, or more.

The Laudato Si’ Animators program will include three webinars, which will be recorded, as well as a capstone project and follow up calls for planning the final project. As a Laudato Si Animator you will also receive regular updates on future events, and the opportunity to talk to other animators about how to spread the message of Laudato Si in their communities.
