The Global Catholic Climate Movement (GCCM) has a new name, with the blessing of Pope Francis: the Laudato Si’ Movement.
It was announced on July 29, 2021 in a webinar attended by more than 8,000 participants from around the world.
Tomás Insua, executive director of LSM, described the move as the result of a “synodal journey” aimed at a deeper ecological conversion.
Cardinal Michael Czerny from the Vatican Dicastry for Promoting Human Development said: “This name is a prayer…. When we name the movement now, every time we name it, we’re saying a prayer.”
