Tuesday, April 30, 2019 - 5:30pm to 7:00pm

The University of Dayton and greater Dayton communities are invited to honor Earth Day as we explore the Catholic Climate Covenant resources for Earth Day 2019 - All Creation Gives God Praise: Protecting Biodiversity in a Time of Climate Crisis. Join us for a FREE dinner and community dialogue hosted by the Hanley Sustainability Institute at UD.    

The diversity and the populations of the species around us and upon which we depend, are declining at alarming rates, impacting our food supply, health and habitats worldwide.  However, we can act to protect our species, through our individual actions, our communities, nationally, and globally.  Grounded in scripture, Catholic social teaching, and Laudato Si', this year’s Earth Day program will help mobilize communities to take urgent action to protect all of God’s creation. We'll also learn about how native plants are restoring wildlife habitats and attracting pollinators at UD and what you can do in your own landscapes. 

This event includes a free taco bar dinner (dinner RSVP requested by Wednesday, April 24th), table dialogue, and resources for use for your own reflection or community setting. Your RSVP will help our planning. 

Held at University of Dayton in the Kennedy Union Torch Lounge.  Meeting rooms are fully accessible.  

PARKING IS FREE, but you must have a PERMIT.  Stop at a Parking Visitors' Kiosk to Obtain a FREE Parking Permit and directions on where to park.
