Daniel Misleh, Executive Director of the Catholic Climate Covenant

On Wednesday October 28th, the Notre Dame community will have a unique opportunity for a conversation with the Executive Director of the Catholic Climate Covenant, Daniel Misleh. 

The Catholic Climate Covenant is the leading organization in the United States that works to engage Catholic parishes, schools, and individuals in promoting a faithful response to the moral challenges posed by climate change. Misleh founded the organization in 2006 after working for 11 years in the department of Justice, Peace and Human Development at the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, and three years in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati's social action office.

"It's a privilege for me to wake up every day to work with our partners and supporters to share the good news of Catholic teaching on climate change and environmental protection," says Misleh. Although a loyal Xavier alum, Misleh has been a longstanding supporter of Notre Dame's sustainability efforts, dating back to 2009 when he gave the keynote address at ND's landmark conference Renewing the Campus: Sustainability and the Catholic University.

The discussion with Misleh will take place at 7 PM on the 28th in Andrews Auditorium in the basement of Geddes Hall. Students are encouraged to actively participate in the dialogue on how our campus community can more fully live the message of Pope Francis' encyclical Laudato Si'. Misleh's visit is sponsored by the Center for Social Concerns.
