The Laudato Si' Research Institute is pleased to welcome Dr Oliver Putz from the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies, Germany, to give a talk entitled "Radical Ecological Conversion as Objective and Opportunity: Catholic Responsibilities after Laudato Si.‘"
In his talk, Dr Putz will explore the ways in which the Catholic Church can drive societal transition from the current 'technocratic paradigm' - the way society has taken up advancement in technology without concerns for its potentially negative impact on human beings - to an integral ecology that takes into account the relationship between humans and their environment.
He will discuss how a radical ecological conversion is needed, and turns to theological, philosophical, political, and psychological insights to identify how such a conversion might be feasible.
Date: Thursday 5 March 2020
Time: 5:30pm - 7:00pm
