Canisius College became one of the first universities in the United States to commit to the Laudato Si’ Action Platform, inspired by Pope Francis’ 2015 ecological encyclical, “Laudato Si’: On Care for our Common Home.”
The Laudato Si’ Action Platform is a Vatican-led initiative, in collaboration with several partners, to empower the universal Church to achieve total sustainability in the holistic spirit of integral ecology. The goal is to have various partners with the Church agree to a seven-year journey toward sustainability.
The Vatican’s Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development launched the enrollment phase of the Platform on Sunday, November 14, 2021, the Global Day of Prayer for the Poor. This day is a deeply meaningful symbol of the Platform’s commitment to serving those who are most vulnerable to the consequences of our socio-ecological crisis.
