Greta has said that “our house is on fire.” Young Catholics around the world are taking steps to douse the flames. Together, they are the Laudato Si’ Generation, and they are mobilizing for climate justice.

Members of Laudato Si’ Generation have participated in the climate strikes Greta started, and they are planning a highly visible presence in the next strike. The next climate strike will take place on May 24, the anniversary of Laudato Si’.
