Climate Change, Stewardship of the Planet: Duquesne Sets Research Conference

Climate change has been a popular topic of discussion and research, even more so as Pope Francis brings it to the forefront of the Church's environmental agenda.

Duquesne University will tackle the topic in its inaugural Presidential Conference on the Integrity of Creation, www.duq.edu/ioc, which will be held Wednesday, Sept. 30, through Friday, Oct. 3.

At this opening conference, climate change will be discussed as a substantive and worrying change of patterns in the weather and related phenomena that negatively impact the entire planet. The implications of climate change will be explored from a variety of scholarly perspectives to consider ways to improve the planet's future and safeguard the surrounding integrity of creation.

The deadline for faculty and students submitting papers and posters on climate change is Friday, May 15. The conference is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
