About us

Laudato Si’ Generation is the youth branch of the Global Catholic Climate Movement, an international network of over 800 Catholic organizations.

We’re mobilizing for climate justice to call the Church and the world to action. Pope Francis says that “the environment is on loan to each generation, which must then hand it on to the next.” (Laudato Si’ 159)
