New edition of Laudato Si' Animators Course

Registration has begun for the Laudato Si' Animators course, 2024 edition, which trains leaders on Pope Francis' encyclical to guide communities towards an ecological conversion.

Laudato Si' Movement announces the reopening of the Laudato Si' Animators Program, a five-week course that trains leaders who are members of a global community of prayer and action, encouraging their parishes and local communities to commit to ecological spirituality, sustainable lifestyles and advocacy for climate and ecological justice.

The course is free and 100% online, allowing participants to follow the classes synchronously, starting on April 8 and concluding on May 5; or asynchronously, following the program at their own pace, according to each student's personal possibilities. Registration is now open on the website.

More than 16,000 people of various ages around the world have already been certified as Laudato Si' Animators and are serving in their communities, heeding Pope Francis' call: "The urgent challenge to protect our common home includes a concern to bring the whole human family together to seek a sustainable and integral development" (LS 13).

The course objectives are to sensitize the Catholic community to the socio-environmental challenges of our common home and how they can be interpreted in the light of faith; and to promote the active participation of members of the Catholic Church and people of good will within communities working for integral ecology.

The methodology followed by the training program is inspired by the " See, Judge , Act" pedagogy. It consists of 4 modules, each with audiovisual materials and an evaluation, live spaces (synchronous) and a module for the elaboration of a final project that will allow participants to apply the knowledge acquired in their local community.
