Sowing Hope for the Planet is a project of UISG (Union of International Superiors General) and is set up to engage sisters in Laudato Si’ and to share with one another what we are doing in our communities, share resources and encourage action within our congregations. It is an opportunity to develop a network around the world to connect us in our care for our common home.
