Special Box Lunch Keynote: Inter-Faith Perspectives on Global Sustainability
In the face of unprecedented global change, Pope Francis recently challenged people of all faiths to unite together for what he called "integral ecology." Is his appeal compelling? What of a similar nature has been said in other faith traditions and what is new about this appeal? This interfaith panel discussion on global sustainability will explore a variety of faith perspectives that may contrast or correlate with the Pope's Laudato Si': On Care for Our Common Home. Scholars and religious leaders representing diverse faith traditions will engage with one another to discuss the roots and meanings of "integral ecology" and this contemporary call to action.
