Written entirely by youth (aged 17 to 35) from 20 countries, this book comprises the thoughts, wisdom, dreams and aspirations of a generation that wants to change how we run the economy, foster community, lead and govern, facilitate education, use and apply technology, and live among the rest of creation. But it is more than just a book; through multimedia including a website, Instagram, Twitter and videos, it is a call to a global conversation to foster ecological conversion.
Generation Laudato Si’ is a remarkable labour of love and of hope! By presenting some of our ecological challenges from the perspective of young people, this book speaks to all generations…
Pierre Charland, OFM, Minister Provincial, Franciscans of Canada
This book is a wonderful response to Pope Francis’ “appeal for a new dialogue about how we are shaping the future of our planet” and the “urgent moral need for a renewed sense of intergenerational solidarity.”
Evanne Hunter, IBVM
The news that Francis’s remarkable encyclical is working its way down through the vast institutions of the Catholic Church is very welcome – and even better that it is lodging in the minds and hearts of young people.
Bill McKibben, Schumann Distinguished Scholar, Middlebury College, Vermont
The editors of this inspiring book truly offer us a treasure: a long-awaited resource for relating Laudato Si’ with the faith, determination, and wisdom of a young generation.
Hilda P. Koster, SSJ, Associate Professor in Ecological Theology, University of Toronto
Generation Laudato Si’ … has bolstered my conviction that this is not the end: there is still much to be done, and ours is the generation that can do it – we can “shift the paradigm.”
Yusra Shafi, KAIROS Youth Delegate to COP27
