The Norbertine Center for Spirituality in De Pere is using Leonardo DiCaprio’s 2016 National Geographic documentary as the starting point for a conversation on climate change on Wednesday. The award-winning “Before the Flood” takes viewers around the globe to see the effects of man-made global warming and the impact it has on the communities it damages. Brother Steve Herro says the topic ties into the church’s efforts to do its part in addressing climate change.
Following the film, social ethics graduate student and representatives from the Citizen Climate Lobby and the St. Norbert College Geology staff will lead a discussion about the movie. The event takes place in Killeen Room at the Norbertine Center for Spirituality beginning at 6:30 p.m.
