Pope Francis’s landmark encyclical Laudato Si made it clear that combating climate change and protecting the environment represent religious duties. Now, Catholic organisations will convene in Rome to examine the links between fossil fuel divestment and investments in community-based renewable energy.

Mark Campanale, our founder and executive director, will join prominent speakers including Cardinal Peter Turkson (Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development), Christiana Figueres (former UNFCCC chief and architect of the Paris Agreement) and Cardinal John Ribat (President of Federation of Catholic Bishops of Oceania) to discuss the alignment between faith groups and other actors at the forefront of the clean energy transition.

You can learn more about the conference at the website: www.Laudato-Si-Investing.com

Seating is limited, so we encourage you to register as soon as possible. To register for the conference, please click here or contact Daniela Finamore, FOCSIV at d.finamore@focsiv.it.
