27 Mar Development, nature and religion conference
A conference on the incorporation of sustainable development in the research agendas of religious studies and theology is organised on 28 September 2007, in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, by the Centre for Sustainable Management and Resources.
Lately, sustainable development has gained momentum and the role, intentions and motivation of world religions towards the environment is currently under scrutiny. Although all faiths and life philosophies nurture worldviews on the essence of life, humankind and nature, the positive or negative impact of those worldviews on the environment is by no means clear. In order to promote debate on these issues, it is necessary to examine ways to incorporate sustainable development in theology and religious studies and explore how they can support the conclusions of new evidence of the rapid climate change, the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment report and media presentations, such as Al Gore’s move An Inconvenient Truth.
