Keeping Earth: Religious and Scientific Perspectives on the Environment

September 16, 2017 at 9:00 am - 3:00 pm EDT

Providence Hall Community Room

1 Sisters of Providence
Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, IN 47876


Through the words of scientists and Popes, we examine the reality of the degradation of the planet; the moral imperative to take action; and the power of informed individual, to create change.

Today science has given us a glimpse into a universe unimaginable only a few years ago.  With  new understandings comes the responsibility to reflect on how the attitudes and actions of the human community have placed much of that  life in great jeopardy.  We are called by scientists, environmentalists, Popes and religious leader across the globe to be responsible in shaping a sustainable future.  Through knowledge of critical issues impacting the future of the planet and all life upon it, we are moved to action toward a sustainable future.  In this program we will hear the facts;listen to the words of scientists and religious leaders; discuss possibilities for change; and move toward  a just, sustainable future.

Cost includes lunch.
