Interdisciplinary Flash Panel: Environment, Poverty, and Global Development


What does Pope Francis’s encyclical “Laudato Si’” say to us?

Join five experts from across the University for a dynamic conversation exploring what Pope Francis’s encyclical Laudato Si’: On Care for Our Common Home means for human development around the globe. How can we understand the encyclical as more than a document about climate change? How can an interdisciplinary perspective deepen and enrich the way we interpret “Laudato si’”?
