Now available: Presentations from Faith, Food & the Environment symposium
Over 70 representatives from agricultural groups, agribusiness, environmental studies and academia, including theology, gathered this past week on the campus of the University of St. Thomas for the Faith, Food & Environment symposium.
Participants came to St. Paul, Minn., for a three-day gathering to address some of the pressing challenges facing agriculture, such as conserving the natural resource base and preparing to feed an ever-larger world population.
The symposium featured presentations from scholars, religious figures, and leaders of national farm groups. The outcomes from this symposium, plus another one planned for next year in Milan, Italy, will serve as the basis for a comprehensive reflection on the vocation of agriculture.
Along with this reflection will be a set of practical resources that Catholic Rural Life is developing in partnership with the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace to inform the next generation of food and agriculture leaders how religious faith connects with their work.
