Care for our common home
Our mission is to unite individuals, communities and organisations of all religions and origin to work together for a positive environmental impact on a large scale.
We promote the principles of the encyclical Laudato Si' and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
We encourage environmental protection through tree planting in support of the UN's One Trillion Tree Campaign.
The Living Chapel is a site-specific artistic installation which meets the challenges of climate change through 4 fundamental and distinctive design principles:
What we do
The Living Chapel is an environmental installation replicable everywhere in the world that combines renewable energy sources, recycled materials, living plants and a sustainable use of water resources.
Based on the principle of integral ecology of the Encyclical Laudato Si', the Living Chapel is a model of sustainable and "living" architecture designed to inspire new spaces of spirituality and ecological awareness among all peoples of all religions.
Designing, building and nurturing a Living Chapel over time is a process that engages young people and businesses.

The First Living Chapel
Made entirely of 100% recycled aluminium and oil barrels regenerated into musical instruments.
It’s energy self-sufficient thanks to solar panels powering a closed water cycle which feeds the plants and produces a musical symphony.
It's a “living” architecture covered by 3,500 plants contributing to the improvement of air quality and the mitigation of summer temperatures.
Inspired by the Assisi’s Portiuncula, it was designed by Canadian architect Gillean Denny supported by more than 100 volunteer students from Pennsylvania University.
From a concept by Julian Darius Revie
