Piura and Lima, Peru -- Integral Ecology and a Culture of Encounter
In October, the University of Piura organized a conference on “Integral ecology and a culture of encounter.” In the light of Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato si’, a dialogue was held on the need to foster an inclusive economy and social responsibility, confronting the challenges of poverty. Also highlighted was the need for spiritual formation and an integral ecology. During the days of the conference representatives took part from the academic world, the government, institutions that promote human development, and the business sector. Various ways to help further the suggestions in the pontifical document were specified.
