Burhans is executive director of the Goodland Project, an initiative she founded to increase the Catholic Church’s understanding and ecological planning of its landholdings, in order to demonstrate how these lands can be a means for positive global environmental and social change.

As part of the symposium, Burhans presented about the many ways the Goodlands Project will benefit the Church, specifically how it lays the foundation for mapping the Catholic Church and creates a platform that helps Catholic organizations, research institutes, and leadership share information.
