To draw wisdom from people and planet for a reconciled world.

The Laudato Si' Research Institute is based at Campion Hall at the University of Oxford, and is a work of the Jesuits in Britain. Since opening in 2019, our work has been inspired by Pope Francis' vision in the encyclical Laudato Si': On Care for Our Common Home, which calls all people to respond to the "cry of the earth" and the "cry of the poor".

Inspired by Ignatian traditions and drawing insights from the natural sciences, the social sciences and the humanities, the Institute’s mission is to develop an integral ecology paradigm to create a hope-filled future for socio-ecological transformation.

“If we are truly concerned to develop an ecology capable of remedying the damage we have done, no branch of the sciences and no form of wisdom can be left out, and that includes religion and the language particular to it” §63
