“Laudato Si’” — Faithful Action

7:30–10:30 p.m. G.M.T.
The Forum
Film Screening

Can faith mobilize people in ways that activism can’t? In densely populated cities in the Global South — where emissions are high, human and natural health are seriously compromised, and where most people, incidentally, are religious — faith is arguably one of our biggest untapped sources of climate activism and solidarity. How are religious leaders mobilizing people of faith and their networks to care and act on behalf of the planet, and what more can be done? What common ground can religious leaders find among themselves? What would different faith engagement strategies look like in the contexts of community, national and international engagement?

Join The New York Times' green carpet premiere of excerpts from the highly anticipated “Laudato Si’,'' a feature-length documentary from the BAFTA and Oscar-winning production company Off The Fence, (My Octopus Teacher).

Set to debut as a YouTube Original in early 2022, “Laudato Si’'' documents Pope Francis’s encyclical environment manifesto, sharing an urgent call to arms to protect our planet and one another.
