Environmental degradation and climate change have become closely linked with human rights and dignity. More than a billion of the world's poor stand vulnerable to the life-threatening effects of severe weather, declining crop yields, and contaminated water.
How can people of faith, politicians, and humanitarian leaders respond effectively to the twin challenges of ecological devastation and global poverty?
Join us for a forum engaging religious and secular perspectives on one of the greatest moral challenges of our time.
