About Laudato Sí Movement (LSM)

Laudato Si Movement serves the Catholic family worldwide to turn Pope Francis’ Laudato Si’ encyclical letter into action for climate and ecological justice. Laudato Si Movement’s grassroots movement-building efforts draw on the combined gifts of nearly 800 member organisations and thousands of grassroots volunteers to help bring the Laudato Si message to life. We enjoy a collaborative working environment where everyone is committed to tackling the climate crisis and environmental injustices and preserving our common home with courage and love. As Pope Francis said in Laudato Si’, we believe that “truly, much can be done!”
