Unpacking Pope's call to action on climate change

Published: Monday 27th July 2015

Join Australian Catholic University (ACU) and leading Australian Catholic voices for a panel discussion response to Pope Francis’ Laudato Si’, which is a call to action on climate change. 

Reverend Professor Denis Edwards, of the Faculty of Theology and Philosophy, will provide an overview of the Pontiff’s revolutionary new encyclical which reminds us of our responsibility to protect the earth.

Bishop Peter Comensoli (Bishop, Broken Bay Diocese), Ms Jacqui Remond (Director, Catholic Earthcare Australia) and Mr Paul O’Callaghan (CEO, Caritas Australia) will then join us for a panel discussion. Each panellist brings a unique perspective to help us unpack our role in responding to the Pope’s call.

Attendees of the live event will have the opportunity to submit a question on entry.
