Lecture Series FS 2018: Sustainability and Religion
In many societies, religious organisations and actors are held in high esteem and constitute important public actors. Against the backdrop of climate change, some religious groups have adopted proactive positions in the public sphere while others intensified their previous engagement, as prominently illustrated by Pope Francis’ encyclical “Laudato Si: On Care for Our Common Home”. On the other hand, religious worldviews can also promote climate change scepticism, thereby blocking sustainability transitions. The lecture series addresses the involvement of religion in sustainability transitions. It explores the “greening” of different faith traditions and the transitions activities of religious organisations. Various experts will contribute to this lecture with insights from their research and their activities in the field of religion and sustainability.
