CWN Editor's Note: A leading British medical journal has published “Laudato Si’ and the emerging contribution of Catholic research universities to planetary health.”

Professor Philip Landrigan, director of the Program for Global Public Health at Boston College, and his five coauthors wrote in The Lancet that the Strategic Alliance of Catholic Research Universities, inspired by the encyclical, “can bridge political divides and serve as models of transdisciplinary research, while also nurturing the deep realignment of people’s relationship with the planet and with each other, which Pope Francis calls for in Laudato Si’ and which the world urgently needs.”

The article was among the four “comments” that preceded the main articles in the March 2024 edition of The Lancet.
