Integrity of Creation Conference, Protecting our Common Home: Scientific Contributions & Religious Perspectives
9-28-2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9-29-2016 @ 5:30 pm
The second annual conference in this scholarly series on the Integrity of Creation will focus on Protecting our Common Home, reflecting Pope Francis’ appeal to all people to meet “the urgent challenge to protect our common home” (Laudato Si’, number 13). Various scientific contributions & religious perspectives will consider a wide range of topics, such as the planetary common good, ecological interdependence, the future of the earth and navigating the Anthropocene (referring to human activity as making a significant impact on Earth’s geology and ecosystems). The conference has three goals:
– To provide a scholarly opportunity to engage established and emerging research on the conference topic
– To foster interdisciplinary discourse on each topic, such as among science, health, philosophy, religion and policy
– To enlighten public awareness and discussion of the conference topic
This event is free and open to the public with a $5 reduced parking rate.
