Laudato Si’ + Conference

15-17 March 2021 – Online

In celebrating the journey since the launch of Laudato Si’, the Vatican’s Dicastery of Integral Human Development has launched the special Laudato Si’ Anniversary Year and the seven-year challenge of the Laudato Si’ Action Platform.


The Institute of Sisters of Mercy of Australia and Papua New Guinea, in partnership with the Faculty of Theology and Philosophy at ACU and the CRA Ecology Alliance Committee, invited conference participants to join us as we explored this call. Recorded sessions of the conference and resources discussed in the sessions can be found below.
