The Call to Care for Our Common Home: Community Conversation for Lasting Change
Hosted by the Virginia Conservation Legacy Fund, the Common Home Community Conversation will focus on the recently released papal encyclical, Laudato Si, especially to examine current environmental problems, to build on a common ground of stewardship, and to engage in collaborative action. The meeting will be free and open to the public. Click here for a program flyer.
The discussion will be co-led by Dr. Eileen Crist, Associate Professor at Virginia Tech’s Department of Science and Technology in Society, and Dr. H. Bruce Rinker, Executive Director of the Valley Conservation Council. Eileen and Bruce co-edited Gaia in Turmoil: Climate Change, Biodepletion, and Earth Ethics in an Age of Crisis (2010, MIT Press), and both have a devoted spirituality that embraces a call for Earth stewardship.
