Our Partners

Join high schools in the Ignatian and Catholic network in bringing Laudato Si’ to life in our classrooms and institutions. Now in its third year, the Ignatian Carbon Challenge will practice Pope Francis’ call to “ecological conversion” (Laudato Si’, 219) in order to prayerfully examine the roots of our consumption and develop the interior freedom to make more sustainable choices that create healthier individuals, communities, and a healthier planet.

This year the Ignatian Carbon Challenge invites both students and secondary institutions to address climate change through a focus on single-use plastic consumption and the theme of Ecological Conversion. During the “Call to Reduce Single-Use Campaign” on December 5th, 2018,  schools will assess current levels of plastics consumption with a trash audit and sign the Ecological Conversion Pledge in anticipation of a week-long plastics reduction campaign in the 2019 spring semester.

Are you ready to take the Ignatian Carbon Challenge?

More details and materials will be available on the website by October 1, 2018.
