This event is a part of the 2018 Fall Faculty Series | Sustainability: Human/Nature & the Future of the Earth

In 1987 the United Nations defined sustainability as "Meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." Since then, an accelerating global demand for natural resources has exceeded the earth's ability to replenish itself.

Focusing on the Mercy Critical Concern of care for the earth, the 2018 Fall Faculty Series looks at the human relationship with the planet we call home and explores the environmental, economic, social, and spiritual causes and consequences of a growing planetary crisis.
