Pope Francis’ latest encyclical is generating a great deal of interest, both within and beyond Roman Catholic circles, in the run-up to the UN Climate Conference in Paris this December. This event will reflect on the encyclical in the current context from two distinct perspectives, asking how it contributes to the development of the Catholic Social Tradition and looking at the contribution it can make to debates involving people of faith from a wider range of traditions.

Light refreshments provided.

There is no charge for this event, but registration in advance is required via the booking link above.
