Recession cannot shade climate crisis, event told
THE ENVIRONMENTAL crisis should not be overshadowed by the global downturn, delegates at the country’s first carbon neutral conference have been told.
More than 200 European delegates have gathered in Limerick for the four-day event focusing on the theme of “Christian Responsibility for the Environment and Investing Care in the Earth”.
This is Ireland’s first carbon neutral conference and the largest ever gathering of Catholic theologians in the country.
