Pope Francis’ encyclical inspires the Laudato Si’ Project in Wisconsin

On any given weekend around the Milwaukee area, you can find a group of Catholics out along hiking trails, taking part in conservation projects or, in the case of a recent excursion, tapping trees to make maple syrup.

The activities are arranged by the Laudato Si’ Project, a local nonprofit inspired by “Laudato Si’, on Care for Our Common Home,” Pope Francis’ 2015 encyclical on the environment and human ecology. The project was formed by Marquette University High School science teacher Joe Meyer.

After a decade long experience in environmental education, we felt the need to initiate an innovative environmental education program which develops leadership qualities for environmental protection. The program thus was designed and experimented as a pilot program in 2014 with 25 students at St. Joseph’s High school, Vadodara. We scaled up this program in a gradual manner every year and this year we have introduced it in eight schools situated at different parts of Gujarat.
