EVENT | Conference on Laudate Deum and the EU’s Green Transition to be held on December 7

COMECE, the Jesuit European Social Centre (JESC) and the European Laudato Si’ Alliance (ELSia) invite you to participate in the Conference “The new Laudate Deum of Pope Francis and the EU’s Green Transition”, to take place in Brussels on Thursday 7 December 2023 from 18:00 to 19:30 (CET). Register now!

The event follows the publication of Laudate Deum, Pope Francis’ recently published Apostolic Exhortation on the ongoing climate crisis. Convinced of the importance of Europe in our common struggle for safeguarding Creation, we will debate what the follow-up to Laudato Si’ means for the climate and environmental policies of the European Union.

The conference will also be an occasion to better understand the importance of Pope Francis’ message in rediscovering our vocation as guardians of Creation and restoring a harmonious relationship between humanity and Creation, by also making sure that the green transition truly “leaves no one behind”.

The program includes an introduction by Xavier De Bénazé SJ, Delegate “Laudato Si’” of the Jesuit French-Speaking Province, followed by an exchange between Josianne Gauthier, Secretary General of CIDSE, and Marie Toussaint, member of the European Parliament.

Afterwards, participants will be able to dialogue with the speakers in a Q&A session, followed by a small reception. The event is organised by COMECE, JESC and ELSiA.
