Public lecture 3 is an attempt to raise awareness and debate on an issue that is far-reaching in its consequences to human existence – the ecological crisis. Ecology, as understood in most Pacific indigenous communities, is both the relationship among the people in a community and the relationship with their natural environment. The well-being and wholeness of these myriad relationships are dependent on the ethics and values systems that govern them. Pertinent to the issue is the question: what are the religious, traditional and cultural resources at our disposal that will help us with reweaving the ecological mat?

Our Guest Speaker is   His Grace, Archbishop Dr Peter Loy Chong, Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Suva.

The lecture will be followed by a moderated question and answer session and refreshments.
