About

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".

Our vision is to make a transdisciplinary approach to socio-ecological research mainstream within higher education. By engaging in a different way of researching, teaching, and learning in higher education, we seek to inspire a new and creative dialogue between the academy and those who are invested in socio-ecological change for the flourishing of our common home.

 

“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
