With the one-year anniversary of the release of Laudato Si’ approaching, Catholic Climate Covenant will be hosting an informative webinar: “Climate Change’s Canaries: Oceans and Vulnerable Populations.”
This evening, Thursday, June 9, at 7 p.m., tune in to hear from leaders such as:
- Sister Wendy Flannery, convenor of Climate Frontlines at Friends of the Earth Australia and member of Earth Matters, Brisbane Archdiocesan Catholic Justice and Peace Commission
- Ryan Ono, Program coordinator of Ocean Acidification Team of the Ocean Conservancy
Flannery and Ono will be joined by members of communities impacted by climate change to discuss their experiences, as well as the specific impacts of climate change on communities of the Pacific, other Small Island States, the U.S., and indigenous communities. Of special importance for discussion will be the ways in which communities of faith can respond to the effects of climate change on the world.
