Our Common Home: An Ethical Summons On Climate Change

Sept. 28 - Oct. 1

Brian Gareau

Brian Gareau is a co-lead faculty member of an ILA-sponsored four-day conference exploring the implications of Pope Francis’s newly released encyclical on the environment and climate change. The conference is timed to immediately follow Pope Francis's September 23-27 visit to Washington, New York and Philadelphia. Distinguished presenters will discuss how the moral voice of faith communities can offer distinct contributions to address climate change, the national and international policy implications of the upcoming international climate conference (COP21) to be held in Paris, and theological considerations of the encyclical, as well as how the encyclical might inform the consciences of members of the Boston College community.
