We have a duty to our brothers and sisters who, for various reasons, have been forced to leave their homeland: a duty of justice, of civility and of solidarity.
— His Holiness Pope Francis

TAKING UP THE CHALLENGES OF HIS HOLINESS POPE FRANCIS’S ENCYCLICAL LAUDATO SI’

The 2019 Laudato sì Challenge seeks to prevent forced displacement by empowering one million families to remain in their homes by 2021, by caring for Our Common Home—through social business and Commitments to Impact—supporting the vision of the SDGs “as a human dignity narrative, that leaves no one behind.”

To that end, The Laudato sì Challenge has put out a call to the most innovative enterprises that are successfully impacting the humanitarian crisis of forced displacement by helping families remain in their homes. A team of world-class judges will select the best enterprise solutions, that will present to leaders in the public, private and faith-based sectors in Vatican City in December, 2019.
