"Interreligious Dialogue on Ecology:
Pope Francis and Asian Religions on the Protection of the Environment"

This lecture will first summarize Pope Francis's teaching on the care for the Earth, our common home, as expressed in Laudato Si' and Querida Amazonia. Next it will explore how the papal teaching can find support in Asian religions, especially Daoism and Buddhism. It will conclude with reflections on how this interreligious dialogue can be a source of inspiration for our common work for ecojustice.
