In partnership with Georgia Tech Astrobiology, the Leadership and Multifaith Program (LAMP) is pleased to announce our fourth annual symposium, entitled "Religious & Scientific Perspectives on the Future of Life." This full-day event aims to generate a multifaith discussion among scholars, clergy, community leaders, and students about science, spirituality, and the future of life on earth and elsewhere. Speakers will address this theme from diverse disciplinary perspectives, including cognitive science, religious studies, ecology, ecotheology, ethics, and astrobiology. The symposium will be held on February 17, 2018, at the Candler School of Theology at Emory University, located at 1531 Dickey Drive, Atlanta, GA 30322. This event is free and open to the public, and registration is required.
