Join the 2017 Laudato Si Animators Program!

Are you ready to help bring Laudato Si to life in your community? 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, Boy Scout troop, or more.


As a Laudato Si Animator, you will:

+ Join a global network of Catholics committed to bringing Laudato Si to life

+ Help your community listen to the Pope’s encyclical message and put it into practice.

+ Participate in online trainings with experts and environmental leaders to help you organize an amazing Season of Creation event(s)

+ Be the first one to receive the latest resources, breaking news and fresh ideas to bring Laudato Si to life

+ Be able to share your experiences and ideas through optional conference calls and online groups.

+ Receive recognition on our website as a Laudato Si Animator and receive an online certificate of completion after Season of Creation.
