Resources from Gonzaga's Climate Center on teaching and supporting sustainability and climate justice.

Laudato Si' Action Platform

Gonzaga University recently became the first U.S. university to officially commit to the ambitious Laudato Si' Action Platform, which was inspired by Pope Francis's 2015 encyclical on climate change and sustainability, “Laudato Si’: On Care for our Common Home.” Read this transformative work here:

Welcome to The Climate Center!

Founded in 2021, the Gonzaga Center for Climate, Society, and the Environment provides resources and opportunities to students, faculty, community members, and leaders in the inland northwest to meet the unprecedented challenges facing humanity and the wider natural environment in the 21st century. Such a vision is central to our identity as a Jesuit institution of higher learning. As Pope Francis writes, “All Christian communities have an important role to play in ecological education.”

This guide was created as a central location for resources on climate, society, and the environment, including relevant published research by Gonzaga faculty, teaching resources, journals and other publications available through the library, and more. This guide is a living document: please email to make a suggestion.
