AKIPRESS.COM - Cardinal Peter Turkson, prefect of the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, will act as the "Commissioner for participation of the Holy See" during the inauguration of the EXPO 2017 Exposition "Future Energy" in Astana, Kazakhstan on 8-11 June, the Dicastery press release said.
The exposition "explores the theme of energy for the future, interpreted as an opportunity for the promotion of humanity and the improvement of the 'common home' on the basis of an equitable and sustainable use of natural resources".
Cardinal Turkson will be accompanied at the event by the Apostolic Nuncio in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, Archbishop Francis Assisi Chullikatt.
The statement says the Vatican's exposition will develop four thematic areas: "The love of God as the origin of the creation of man and of the earth; energy as a tool placed in the hands of man, who has not always made adequate use of it; energy directed towards the development of the person and the care of the common home; and the strength of spirituality, with particular reference to prayer, the search for meaning, and interreligious dialogue."
