Manhattan is part of a worldwide community of colleges and universities that are committed to addressing growing environmental challenges.
On Friday, April 21, Manhattan College will launch its inaugural Laudato Si Day, inspired by Pope Francis’s encyclical and commemorating Earth Day. The program will offer a variety of events focused on education and action for sustainability and environmental justice. The Pope’s public letter entitled Laudato Si (Praise be to you), focuses extensively on care for the natural environment and more broadly on the relationship of God, human beings and the planet.
