Religion and Climate Change in the Public Sphere Panels

Excerpts from the panel "Religion and Climate Change in the Public Sphere: The Role of Journalists and the Media," a day-long forum where journalists and academic experts came together to discuss the media treatment of the Pope's recent encyclical on the environment, Laudato Si', as a means to better understand the role of religion in public debate and activism on climate change.

This panel was made possible by the partnership between the Pulitzer Center, American University's School of Communication, and the Henry Luce Foundation.
