A VIRTUAL EVENT HOSTED BY CANADIAN JESUITS INTERNATIONAL
The Amazon, the Congo Basin and the Boreal Forest are often described as the planet’s lungs – these regions absorb enormous amounts of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Their protection is crucial in mitigating climate change. Canadian Jesuits International is pleased to invite Rigobert Minani, SJ (Ecclesial Network of the Congo Basin Forest), Laura Vicuña Pereira Manso, CF (Ecclesial Conference of the Amazon Region), Ron Thiessen (Canadian Parks & Wilderness Society – Manitoba chapter) and Stephanie Thorassie, executive director of the Seal River Watershed Alliance and member of Sayisi Dene First Nation to speak respectively on the Congo Basin, the Amazon and the Boreal Forest, and the challenges that each region and its peoples face in the fight for ecological justice.
