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."
