Laudato Si' Research Institute 

Our Mission

The primary mission of the Laudato Si’ Research Institute (LSRI) is to conduct cutting-edge transdisciplinary research for societal transformation at the intersections of theology, ecology, and the social and natural sciences on the most pressing environmental issues of our day.

Inspired by Pope Francis’ vision in the encyclical Laudato Si’: On Care for Our Common Home, the LSRI’s research seeks to develop an integral ecology that responds to ‘the cry of the earth’ and 'the cry of the poor’ and thereby a) resources the academy and practitioners in a variety of spheres (including business, development, etc.), and b) influences policies and decision making in national and global governance.
