CLIMATE CHANGE: Sisters Leading The Climate Crisis Revolution

Catholic sisters of the International Union of Superiors General (UISG) are busy gathering Sisters, momentum, ideas, and commitments to protect and safeguard the planet in line with Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Sí and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

The first of a series of “Sister-led dialogues” took place in Rome to challenge international organizations, governments, civil society, Vatican institutions, and academia on three themes: integrating responses to climate change and biodiversity loss; integrating care for people and our planet; integrating vulnerability in leadership. Sister Maamalifar Poreku, a Missionary Sister of Our Lady of Africa, says she believes sisters are in a position to make a difference in raising awareness towards climate change.
