Pope Francis’ call to “care for our common home” resonates differently depending upon where people live. For people living in more ecologically vulnerable parts of the world, such as the islands that compose the Philippines, it can define a path to survival.
Jose Ramon “Jett” Villarin, S.J., president of Ateneo de Manila University and one of the scientists who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007 along with former U.S. Vice President Al Gore, will be at Santa Clara University April 6 to discuss pathways of hope that he sees, for those who seek to care for our common home. His talk will take place from 4 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. in the Saint Clare Room of Santa Clara University’s Harrington Learning Commons. It is part of a series of Santa Clara Lectures funded through the generosity of the Bannan Institute of the Ignatian Center for Jesuit Education at SCU.
