The keynote speaker for the event was Prof. Elena Lasida, who is originally from Uruguay and teaches at L’Institut Catholique in Paris. The theme of the meeting was from a quote of the Prophet Isaiah: “The nights are laden with life. Watcher, what do you say?” She is an economist by profession. She was much inspired by Pope Francis’ encyclical “Laudato Si”.  She spoke to the religious of Canada about how they might involve themselves in the processes of sustainable development and the new economy.
