The Laudato Si Movement (Formally Global Catholic Climate Movement), born in 2015, is the fruit of a kairos – the Greek word used in the Gospel to express “an opportune moment.” The kairos of 2015 was the combination of two transformative events that would shape how the Church and humanity responded to the ecological crisis: the Laudato Si’ encyclical release and the Paris Climate Agreement.

I am an environmentalist and climate change campaigner with over 3 years experience in Advocacy and movement building. I advocate for change in the society and believe in equality as a tool to create a better world. I also believe that no human being is limited, the only thing limited is time, hence the reason I wish to join the Legal Empowerment Network. I want to be part of the change. Change in how we view things, it's time to kick illiteracy out and embrace policies that safeguard and boost the Human Integral development. We need change in the education sectors, health sectors which in one way or another contribute to the development of a society especially in terms of environmental protection and climate change mitigation. It's time we all unite by the power of democracy to echo one voice, the voice of the environment and the marginalised communities. Having a range of experiences in advocacy and movement building, we are not far of, we still have much to do since every human being has there own intrinsic values which support development in the society. I hope to impact many more lives through Legal Empowerment Network, to build hope and resilience especially through effective campaigns.
