Former EPA Chief to Speak at Merrimack Conference

Former EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy will be the keynote speaker Wednesday at Merrimack's Religion, Science and Ecology conference.

The conference — subtitled “Shared Responsibility for the Future” — begins at 11 a.m. in Cascia Hall. McCarthy, now a professor at Harvard’s Chan School of Public Health, will speak at 7 p.m. in the Rogers Center for the Arts.

In February 2018 Cardinal Seán O’Malley, archbishop of Boston, convened an ecumenical and interfaith group of religious leaders in Massachusetts together with leading climate scientists from the Woods Hole Research Center, the University of Massachusetts and other institutions.

Merrimack College, represented by its Center for the Study of Jewish-Christian-Muslim Relations, joined Cardinal O’Malley in this effort, and he has written a letter in praise of the Merrimack conference.

This conference supports the goal of the coalition to bring religious leaders and scientists into dialogue to amplify the urgent call for ecological responsibility. 

Admission is free and open to all members of the community; RSVPs are requested.
