The international conference will be in collaboration with the Southern New Hampshire University and it will face ecology from a theological and cultural point of view. “The aim of the conference – says the patriarch in a message spread through media – is to go deeper in literary and philosophical knowledge of our worries for a sustainable and balanced organization of the environment.
Among the speakers there will the Anglican Timothy Gorringe or some literates and Terry Tempest Williams. They will focus on the need to protect the environment as a gift from God. The conference is opening in Iohannis. In June, Pope Francis will release the Encyclical about nature and environment.
