The Lin Great Speakers Series will be held in conjunction with the Conference on Justice and Social Concerns-Stewardship in Science: A Dialogue on Faith and Bioethics and concludes the schedule of events for the conference.
Gardiner will share his knowledge and expertise about the reality of climate change, as well as our ethical responsibility to actively respond. How can we, as a community of faith, respond to the need of our times and be an active part of this vital and complex conversation?
The Lin Great Speakers Series is presented to the public as a community service. The lectures are made possible by an endowment established in memory of Shu-Chi Lin by his widow, Mrs. Chang Le-Chiao Lin, and their son, Vincent Lin, Ph.D., a St. Mary’s alumnus and former faculty member. Lectures feature Nobel laureates and other distinguished speakers who represent music and the arts, science, engineering, technology and medicine, humanities and global interests, and economics, business and law. Topics of lectures have included health care, interfaith dialogue and the challenges of globalization.
