Pope Francis recently released an encyclical letter on climate change entitled “On Care for Our Common Home” in which he bluntly identifies the profound risks facing humanity and calls for an integrated global response. Pope Francis makes an argument in the letter with a bluntness and a sophistication not matched by any other world leader.

But what exactly would need to be done to make this document a reality and how can its contents be rendered more accessible to the general public? Join us for the first open discussion on this critical text here in Seoul.
