This roundtable meeting brings together a small group of scholars from the United Kingdom, Italy and the United States to discuss the environmental implications of Pope Francis’s Laudato Sì, the encyclical in which he tackles questions about environmental damage and global warming.

Through informal debate participants will cover the broader theological and environmental context in which to place the encyclical. In addition, several specific issues will be discussed relating to environmental problems that face modern regulators. In light of the close relationship between the human and natural environment, specific attention will be paid to the socio-legal dimensions of these environmental and regulatory challenges.

Session 1 will cover the theological and environmental context and session 2 explores environmental issues.
