Event description

Description

Science, Justice, Faith and Care for the Earth

An interdisciplinary discussion on Pope Francis' Encyclical Letter, Laudato Si'

-----------------------

In May 2015, the Vatican released a Papal encyclical titled Laudato Si'. It contains an unprecedented theological and geopolitical framework for tackling climate change.

Reflecting on this monumental task, a panel of eminent speakers will gather exploring the science, faith, and intersectionality of climate change.

Please RSVP above and join us at the Cruciform Building, UCL on 6th February, 7 pm, for this free event. Drinks and reception to follow.

Event is organised by the Newman House Chaplaincy and Westminster Justice and Peace. Further details of speakers and format will be published forthwith.
