Waiting to exhale: Ecological justice for the Earth's lungs    Tue May 17, 2022, Online webinar

Tue, May 17, 2022
12:00 PM – 1:30 PM EDT

The Amazon, the Congo Basin, and the Boreal Forest are often described as the planet’s lungs -- these regions absorb enormous amounts of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and breathe out oxygen. Their protection is crucial in mitigating climate change.

Canadian Jesuits International is pleased to invite Rigobert Minani SJ (Ecclesial Network of the Congo Basin Forest), Laura Vicuña Pereira Manso, CF (Ecclesial Conference of the Amazon Region), Ron Thiessen (Canadian Parks & Wilderness Society – Manitoba chapter) and Stephanie Thorassie (Seal River Watershed Alliance) to speak about the challenges that these regions and their people face.
