The impact of climate change on the biosphere—resulting in the decimation of the living world through biological extinction—and its practical and moral meaning for us all.

About the Climate Summit

The Saint Louis Climate Summit was dedicated to working to fulfill Pope Francis’ call to unite in defense of our common home. Saint Louis University proudly hosted the summit as part of its bicentennial anniversary celebration and honored Pope Francis’ call to unite leaders in defense of the health and well-being of the planet. As one of the most respected Jesuit educational institutions in the world, celebrating its 200-year anniversary in 2018 under the Catholic Church’s first-ever Jesuit Pope, there is perhaps no other institution as appropriate to convene a summit aimed at tackling the challenges outlined in Pope Francis’ 2014 Encyclical. Nine Network served as SLU’s media partner, providing event and marketing management.
