Trócaire 50th Anniversary ConferenceLearn More
This week we are celebrating the first anniversary of the ground-breaking papal encyclical Laudato Sí, published on the 18 June 2015.
In the encyclical, which is now an integral part of Catholic Social Teaching (CST), Pope Francis called on everyone across the world, not just Catholics, to stand up and take action on the destruction of the environment and the worsening and unjust impacts climate change.
“At all levels, a change of mindset is needed. It is the same mindset that is needed to tackle both climate change and world poverty.”(Laudato Sí 175)
