What is this course about?

We offer this course for everyone who wants to gain insights into the major themes of Pope Francis’ groundbreaking encyclical and who desires to become a part of the global Franciscan movement towards ecological conversion and systemic change. 

This course is created as a transformational tool that will inform and empower you to respond creatively, collaboratively, and courageously to Pope Francis call for “a true ecological and social that integrate questions of justice in debates on the environment, so as to hear both the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor.”  

Each of the ten sessions of this online course consists of a video lecture, reading material, and short test. The curriculum features a diverse group of presenters: theologians, scientists, teachers, and activists.  In this course, the registered participants will learn from different Franciscan perspectives, faith-based environmental activism, and Jewish and Muslim viewpoints about the practical implications of the encyclical Laudato Si’. 

The content of the course also includes additional, optional background material you can use at your parish, school, and the wider community to inform, inspire, and empower others around you to grow in their Christian faith, seek justice for the poor, and protect our common home.

The English course will begin on September 7
