Youth for Laudato Si’

GJEM during the past five years through its varied programs has made conscious efforts to communicate the core message of Laudato Si’ to the youth. In order to do it effectively, we have used films, activity modules, cosmic walk and presentations. A series of seminar for the youth and children have been organized by GJEM with an aim to inspire them for environmental actions.
