Seventh Symposium of the Religion, Science and the Environment, 2007 on Board of M/S Fram at the coast of West Greenland
Representatives of different world religions as well as leading scientists and delegates of environmental organisations were invited by His Holiness Bartholomaios I, the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople, to take part in the Seventh Symposium of the Religion, Science and the Environment movement, 2007. The subject of attention was "The Arctic: Mirror of Life". The Catholic Pope thanked the Patriarch for his dedication and personal commitment to the protection of the environment, which demonstrates the pressing need for science and religion to work together to safeguard the gifts of nature and to promote responsible stewardship.
It gives me great joy to greet you and all those taking part in the Seventh Symposium of the Religion, Science and the Environment movement, which this year turns its attention to the subject: “The Arctic: Mirror of Life”
