LOOK: In support of the Women’s Month Celebration, IGOROTA Foundation Inc. will be conducting a Forum on Women and Laudato Si: Seeing Through Gender Lens. This is a reflection on the relationship between women and ‘Laudato Si’, the encyclical written by Pope Francis, who wrote it to address the massive environmental devastation that is happening currently in our human history. It will talk about the responsibility of humans to care for our Common Home. Laudato Si was made public on May 15, 2015.

Open to all. Kindly register in advance for this meeting:https://us02web.zoom.us/…/tZ0ucOyorjMsGNRw63EjoSmTPvHiU… After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
