Back to the Garden - Rediscovering the Links Between Natural & Human Ecology
Pro-environment, pro-life: Why is it that so often the two are at odds with one another?

Sister Damien Marie Savino, FSE, Chair of the Environmental Science and Studies Department at the University of St. Thomas, will comment on Pope Benedict’s notions of natural and human ecology. Mrs. Kim Broussard, Certified Fertility Care Practitioner and Director of Fertility Care in Fort Bend, will discuss Natural Family Planning as “The Green Option.” Finally, UST student and Environmental Studies-Theology double major Marcus Walden will comment on his own pro-environment, pro-life convictions..

Cities and Environmental Stewardship: Human Flourishing and the Duties of An Intermediate Being
Are human beings a scourge on nature? Or are human beings a part of nature? If human beings have the capacity to do harm to the natural order, have we also the capacity to do good to the natural order? If so, what are the anthropological implications of these capacities? And what are the implications of 'harming' and of 'doing good' to the natural order, particularly with respect to how human beings order our built environment? This lecture considers these and other questions related to architecture and urban design. University of Notre Dame professor Philip Bess teaches graduate urban design and theory, with a particular interest in Catholic and classical humanist intellectual and artistic traditions in the context of modern American life and the contemporary culture of architecture and urban design. Professor Bess lectures widely and is the author of City Baseball Magic: Plain Talk and Uncommon Sense About Cities and Baseball Parks, Inland Architecture: Subterranean Essays on Moral Order and Formal Order in Chicago and Till We Have Built Jerusalem: Architecture, Urbanism, and the Sacred. Speaker: Phil Bess Date: April 23, 2015 Location: Ahern Room: Crooker Center Length: 66 mins
