“Spirituality and Sustainability: Hope for All Creation”

Tuesday, September 20, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The environmental and social challenges we face today are greater than ever, and while good science and effective policy will be critical in solving many issues, the balance of effort to achieve sustainability will remain in part spiritual.  Pope Francis issued a call in his 2015 encyclical, Laudato Si’, for all people to engage in honest dialogue about the challenges we face, and to pursue an integral ecology that links natural, social, and spiritual ecology and invites an ecological conversion to care for creation and the poor.  The response to this call has been taking shape in communities across the world, from COP-21 in Paris to local actions in diverse communities of all kinds — so what does this mean for all of us moving forward?

Presenter:  Gregory E. Hitzhusen, MDiv, PhD Assistant Professor of Professional Practice in Religion, School of Environment and Natural Resources, The Ohio SAVE logoState University.

Attend this FREE public lecture hosted by S.A.V.E. – Science Alliance for Valuing the Environment.
