Laudato Si'

HSI and Vince Miller, the Gudorf Chair in Catholic Theology and Culture, convened the Laudato Si’ conference, a first of its kind.

The outcome of the conference will be the creation of a textbook for use at Catholic universities. We anticipate that this will likely be the first textbook published that directly educates around the Laudato Si' encyclical.
