“An integral ecology includes taking time to recover a serene harmony with creation, reflecting on our lifestyle and our ideals, and contemplating the Creator who lives among us and surrounds us …”

(Laudato Si’, Paragraph 225)

You are warmly invited to join a Laudato Si’ Animator Formation Program in 2017. Our next program will be taking place at the Benedictine Monastery in New Norcia (Western Australia) from October 9th – 12th.

Are you wondering how to respond to Laudato Si’?

  • What it would take to animate the call for justice, peace and integrity of creation, so that we learn how to live and work in harmony with our planet?
  • What is required for your organisation to take the transformative journey of ecological conversion and develop an integral ecology?

The Laudato Si’ Animator Program is intended for those who are in leadership positions and those who have the capacity to lead change. Catholic Earthcare Australia offers ASSISI (A Strategic, Systems-based Integrated Sustainability Initiative) as a comprehensive and holistic approach for organisations to develop an integral ecology.

During the course of this formation experience, participants are exposed to contemporary ecological theology, scientific understandings of sustainability and transformative social processes that have been successfully implemented with organisations across Australia. This intensive residential program is central to the formation experience for Animators. Participants are required to do some individual preparatory work prior to the program and some follow-up work with peers after the program.

Participants will become part of Catholic Earthcare’s Animator Network, and the participant group are invited to form a learning community for ecological conversion as a source of ongoing support.
