This Open Academy Event is an evening event which brings the sciences, the humanities and the arts together for an evening of trans-disciplinary exchange on theme of the environment and the ecological challenges facing the East Coast of Newfoundland in the coming years. The event will contribute to a growing sense of the need for what Pope Francis calls an “integral ecology” if we are to avoid the worst effects of climate change on the coming years. At the same time, the event is a celebration of hope, as the community in St. John’s gathers to imagine the best possible future for the environment around the city.

Dr. Sean McGrath brings to you an evening with speakers and leading ecologists: Professor Heather Eaton, Saint Paul University (Ottawa) Professor Bill Montevecci, Memorial University; a tour of the vaults at the Rooms focusing on the works of Gerald Squires; the evening will close with a performance of selections from the music of Andrew Staniland.
