Assumption Sister Cécile Renouard PhD visited London for a series of talks exploring issues around ethics, economics and ecology; the implications of climate change, endless growth vs. de-growth.
Full house welcomed Sr Cécile for the evening lecture, organised by the Assumption Sisters' Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation Team. In her talk she empasised: "Instead of making isolated decisions about economics, the climate, solidarity with the poor - we should discern alternative approaches and consider new priorities in business, politics and society."

The second talk in the series from Sr Cécile took place in Newman House, the Catholic University Chaplaincy in London. She gave a talk about Laudato Si' and the need to "humanise the economy". You can listen to the lecture by clicking here.
