The main inspiring source of the conference was Pope Francis’ encyclical letter Laudato si’. Integral Ecology as proposed by the encyclical integrates concerns for people and the planet. An integral transdisciplinary understanding of the world ties science to human values. It sees the world as a systemically linked system of ecology, economy, equity and justice, accessible through the natural and social sciences, arts and humanities.
