Climate activists to introduce new papal document at Vatican press conference
October 03, 2023
CWN Editor's Note: The Vatican has announced a press conference to be held on Thursday, October 5, to introduce Laudate Deum, a new papal statement on climate change.
The Vatican announcement mentions nine speakers who will comment on the Pope’s statement. In a rarity for the introduction of a papal document, none of the experts scheduled to speak at the press conference is a bishop, priest, or theologian. The line-up includes scientists, environmental activists, and authors.
The new document, an apostolic exhortation following up on the encyclical Laudato Si’, will be released that same day.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above). About CWN news coverage.
