Care for our common home: Notre Dame Forum 2021-22


Conversations sparked by forum will last beyond 2021-22

This year’s Notre Dame Forum theme resonated so strongly at the University, it built bridges across campus, presenting opportunities for new research and scholarship partnerships. The forum drew on Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si' — a statement on what’s happening to Earth due to global warming-induced climate change. 
“Everyone found a thread of inspiration which made for a tapestry of events that enriched our ND community in ways we never could have predicted.” — Jennifer Tank, director of the Notre Dame Environmental Change Initiative and the Ludmilla F., Stephen J. and Robert T. Galla Professor of Biological Sciences
