Concluding conference of the three-year research:
From the encyclical Laudato si’ to the European Commission’s 2020-2025 program
Climate Neutrality and Decarbonization of the Economy
Interests at stake and safeguarding creation
The issue of the human contribution to extreme weather phenomena and rapid climate warming requires immediate decisions based on verified scientific data.
To make a contribution in this direction, the Faculty of Social Sciences of the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas in Rome, starting from the positions of the Holy See and the EU, has promoted a three-year research project on climate neutrality and the carbonisation of the economy.
The conference will present the results, calling researchers, authorities and experts to debate. Climate, economy, energy, electric cars, the terrestrial and marine environment, and biodiversity will be discussed, with references to ethical and theological inspiration.
The book that collects the results of the three-year research will be available at the conference.
