International Environmental Research Group

In connection with the Laudato Si Observatory on the Environment, and under the leadership of the Catholic University of Costa Rica, FIUC has created an international research group on environmental issues. This group aims to share the experiences of its members in terms of the green campus, to pool course syllabi integrating the environmental issue in all academic disciplines, and to conduct research: the first theme envisaged is the definition and legal scope of the concept of ecocide. The group also intends to maintain close links with the Roman dicastery for integral human development.
