Laudato Si Animators

Laudato Si’ Animators are local leaders who strive to live Laudato Si’ in their own lives while inspiring and motivating others in their communities to bring Laudato Si’ to life as well.

We need each other in this journey for a better future. Working together, we are building a mass scale movement to address the ecological crisis and climate emergency.

Your Title Goes Here

Your content goes here. Edit or remove this text inline or in the module Content settings. You can also style every aspect of this content in the module Design settings and even apply custom CSS to this text in the module Advanced settings.

This course will empower you to bring Laudato Si’ to life:
  • Learn how Laudato Si’ is part of Catholic social teaching to protect human dignity and the common good.
  • Understand the causes of climate change and how it affects “the least of these”.
  • See your deep connections to this crisis–and to the movement that’s solving it.
  • Practice leadership in your community and reflect on your growth together.
  • Connect to your faith and the values we hold dear.
  • Dedicate yourself to a lifelong journey of ecological conversion, protecting our sisters and brothers and the common home we share.
  • If you, your parish, or religious order are able to, please make a donation at www.catholicclimatemovement.global/donate.
  • Please also speak with your Employer’s Human Resources Department (or consult your employee handbook) to see if they will make a donation (i.e. Volunteer grant) in honor of the time you volunteer with GCCM, or if they will match your gift. Many employers offer these types of employee benefits to both current and retired employees, but many employees do not know it’s offered.


Stories from the Animators

How 57 people across 10 countries delivered Laudato Si’, the audiobook

How 57 people across 10 countries delivered Laudato Si’, the audiobook

During the recent Season of Creation, the Colombia chapter of the Global Catholic Climate Movement had an idea: How can we more broadly share the life-changing message of Laudato Si’, one of integral ecology, caring for our common home, and uniting with our sisters and brothers across the world to work against the climate crisis?

Fighting Death and Finding My Future as an Educator for Creation

I was not aware that God was leading me toward a new direction and preparing me for a new mission. It is only now, after putting the pieces together, that I understand and appreciate the big picture. I must say that I am in awe seeing myself in this beautiful picture, hand-crafted by God.

Experiencing a new type of eco-conversion

Experiencing a new type of eco-conversion

Laudato Si’ Animator training left a permanent mark on my life by helping me undergo my ecological conversion, which prompted me to involve my children and other young people in living Laudato Si’.

Experiencing a new type of eco-conversion

The Laudato Si’ Animators program has helped me widen my view of my relationship with creation, and I am seeing that perhaps I have a larger role to play in caring for creation. Perhaps it is time to pass on my love of creation to others. Perhaps I need to actively share my process of discovery, joy, and gratitude with those who are interested.

Are Qualifications or experience necessary?
NO! No expertise is needed. People from all backgrounds and walks of life have what it takes to share the message of creation care with their communities. The climate crisis affects all of us, and we’re all needed to solve it.
Course Requirements
The climate crisis is a big challenge, and it requires a big response. This course will prepare you for spiritual growth and transformative community leadership. The course includes weekly readings, videos, participation inn four webinars (or watching recordings), completing homework, writing reflections, and participation in online discussion groups.
How long does the course take?
The webinars will take one hour each, and together with the other activities, the course should take three to four hours each week. There are additional resources for those who wish to be more engaged.
What are the next steps after training?
You’ll work with your community to organize an activity that brings Laudato Si’ to life during the Season of Creation. We are aware that in many countries, physical gatherings are restricted due to the coronavirus pandemic, so we’ll learn about creative ways to take action online.
Will I receive a certificate at the end of the course?
YES! If you have completed all the requirements, you will be issued a certificate of completion, which will be distributed during the online graduation in October.
