DIVESTMENT

Laudato Si' calls upon us to protect God's creation and, for many, divestment from fossil fuels is a moral imperative for faith institutions seeking to live their values in their investments. Find out how you and your institution can commit to the urgent need to keep fossil fuels in the ground.

‘Never have we so hurt and mistreated our common home as we have in the last 200 years.'

– Laudato Si', 52

ENERGY & FOSSIL FUELS

This online dialogue, held in Laudato Si' Week 2021, sponsored by the Vatican's Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development and facilitated by the Global Catholic Climate Covenant (now the Laudato Si' Movement) discusses the role of energy and fossil fuels in the crises of our common home.

RESOURCES ON DIVESTMENT

There are lots of resources available to help you navigate the decision to divest, from an explanation of what divestment entails from Gofossilfree.org to the many guides from Laudato Si' Movement  or available on the Laudato Si' Action Platform.
