About Cardinal Turkson
Cardinal Peter Turkson is the President of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace and Archbishop Emeritus of Cape Coast, Ghana. He served as President of the Ghana Catholic Bishops’ Conference from 1997 to 2005, and has served as Chancellor of the Catholic University College of Ghana since 2003.
A passionate supporter of Laudato Si’: On Care for our Common Home, Pope Francis’ recent encyclical on the environment, Cardinal Turkson told attendees at last year’s UN Summit on Climate Change that we “cannot remain blind to the grave damage done to the planet, nor can we remain indifferent to the plight of the millions of people who most bear the burden of such destruction.”

Stephen Scharper, Associate Professor in the Department of Anthropology, U of T Mississauga and School of the Environment, will present the 2016 Royackers Lecture, "Let Us Sing as We Go" speaking on Pope Francis, Laudato Si', and the Quest for an Integral Ecology.
Pope Francis's melding of poverty and ecological integrity in his encyclical Laudato Si' represents a critical emergence in Catholic social teaching. Yet, given his international pastoral presence and palpable humility, his search for an "integral ecology" represents something deeper and potentially more far-reaching. The larger implications of this quest will be explored in this presentation, including its impact on international political and moral approaches to climate change.
A reception will follow the lecture.
