From carbon emission challenges to newly installed solar panels to the 2,000 honeybees now occupying a high school rooftop, Jesuits and their collaborators have responded in force to Pope Francis’ groundbreaking encyclical on the environment. As the one-year anniversary of “Laudato Si’: On the Care for Our Common Home” approaches, there’s been progress on Pope Francis’ call to action on climate change as a moral imperative, and yet, much more to do.
Join high schools in the Ignatian network in bringing Laudato Si’ to life in our classrooms and institutions. Created by a team of theology and science teachers, the Ignatian Carbon Challenge invites both individuals and institutions to address climate change and environmental justice through a series of monthly challenges.
Together, the Ignatian network has the opportunity to make more sustainable choices that create healthier individuals, communities, and a healthier planet.
