Climate Change and the Common Good: April 8-10, 2013

Climate Change and the Common Good – University of Notre Dame Conference April 8-10, 2013

The University of Notre Dame is hosting Climate Change and the Common Good, a conference to be held from April 8-10, 2013. Universities and non-government organizations in the greater Chicago region have an important contribution to make toward addressing the complex and multidisciplinary challenges posed by climate change and resource scarcity.

The conference hopes to build collaborations and partnerships among participants to build a more sustainable future for society at large. With this conference as a starting point, participants can contribute a valuable ethical perspective to the national and international dialogue about climate change, sustainability efforts in higher education, and provide inspiration for our regional community. As the conference encompasses a diversity of approaches to climate change, from ethics to policy to national security, all disciplines are invited.

Please visit the conference website for the conference agenda and registration information.
