The London Global Gateway is running a series of lectures inspired by Pope Francis' vision set out in 'Laudato Si': On Care for Our Common Home', which calls all people to respond to the "cry of the earth" and the "cry of the poor".
The issue of climate change has sunk into the public and religious consciousness, even if controversial in some quarters, but many don't really understand why we need to care about biodiversity from a religious and moral perspective.
Professor Celia Deane-Drummond, Director of the Laudato Si’ Research Institute and Senior Research Fellow in theology at Campion Hall, University of Oxford, will discuss this in the first lecture of the series, entitled 'Why Does Biodiversity Matter to Us All?'
PLEASE NOTE: Indicated event times are Eastern Standard Time (5:00-6:00pm GMT)
