Join high schools in the Ignatian and Catholic network in bringing Laudato Si’ to life in our classrooms and institutions. Created by a team of theology and science teachers, the Ignatian Carbon Challenge invites both individuals and institutions to address climate change and environmental justice through a series of monthly challenges.
Now in its second year, the Ignatian and Catholic network has the opportunity to make more sustainable choices that create healthier individuals, communities, and a healthier planet.
Are you ready to take Ignatian Carbon Challenge 2.0?
Individuals are encouraged to participate as part of a class, club, community, or on their own.
As a participant, you will receive two emails each month. The first will outline 8 sustainability challenges for the month related to consumption, reflection, and education. At the end of the month, ISN will ask you to fill out a very quick report-back form on which challenges you engaged in. Once all report-backs are collected, we will be able to track and celebrate our collective impacts on creating more sustainable communities.
Throughout the year, we will also promote opportunities to share stories and best practices with the Ignatian network.
Taking on the institutional level Ignatian Carbon Challenge requires one point person from the school and a commitment to benchmarking and seeking to complete the full list of challenges throughout the year.
Participating schools will be provided with the full list of carbon challenges to tackle throughout the year, starting with an institutional carbon assessment. Once each month, ISN will ask the institution’s point person to report back on progress and share insights and stories with the broader Ignatian network.
Sign up now to connect with the Jesuit network and learn how you can learn, educate, pray, and advocate for justice year-round.
