Join the Loyola University Chicago community on 9 September 2015 for a day-long series of events responding to, reflecting upon, and enacting the recent encyclical from Pope Francis on the environment - Laudato Si.

The day's events will include paper presentations and panel discussions from scholars and activists from across the disciplines at LUC, a town hall discussion about the role and future of sustainability at LUC, and an afternoon teach-in on the West Quad which will include spoken word and musical performances, an Ignatian examen, tabling from student and community groups, and more!

In preparation for the event, CCIH Undergraduate Fellows Angelo Canta (CAS '17) and Ron Amiscaray (CAS '16) have complied a video of reactions to and reflections upon Laudato Si. Please click here to see what the Loyola community is saying about this encyclical.
