Laudato si’ Platform


The Laudato si’ Platform is an online hub that collects, directs and coordinates global and local initiatives inspired by the encyclical on the care of creation. The Platform is open to anyone who wants to participate in it. All human beings are invited to become ecological citizens of our common home, the earth. The Platform has seven sectors: families, individuals, parishes and dioceses, schools and universities, hospitals and health care centers, the economic world: businesses (including agricultural ones), cooperatives, the world of work, a large NGO subsector (groups, movements, organizations and even communication centers (which play a major role in this area); and finally both male and female religious orders. There is a beautiful paragraph in Laudato si’ about the simple things everyone can do to help take care of creation, because, as the Pope writes, if we don’t change our lifestyle, we won’t save our planet.
