Earthcare Families

On the 5 year anniversary of Laudato Si, The Dicastery for the Promotion of Integral Human Development discerned 7 groups within the Catholic Church that will embark on a 7 year journey towards an ecological conversion that will work towards 7 goals. The Laudato Si Action Platform has been released to help these 7 groups on their 7 year journey. One of the groups is families.

The program includes 4 phases and at the completion of each phase families will receive a certificate.
