Climate Change & Jesuit Higher Education: Reportback from Loyola Chicago #1

Loyola University Chicago is hosting its second annual Climate Change Conference March 19-21, 2015, at its North Shore Campus in Chicago. The conference is designed to “tend” or pay attention to and serve the needs of Earth at this crucial time in planetary history. It promises to place us squarely in the role of caretaker and explore the implications of “tending earth” through an interdisciplinary reflection on the ethical principles, policies, and actions needed to combat the crisis of global climate change.

The conference is co-sponsored by the six Jesuit universities of the upper Midwest, a collaboration that is promising for the future of Jesuit networking in addressing global issues of justice and sustainability.
