International Conference: Transitioning to Integral Ecology?

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 31 Maggio 2022

Rome 6-7-8 June 2022 (from 2:45 pm to 7 pm) Pontifical Gregorian University Piazza della Pilotta 4. The Pontifical Gregorian University, the Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt, the University of Passau, the Federation of German Scientists (VDW) and other partners will be organizing an international conference in Rome entitled “Transitioning to Integral Ecology? Transdisciplinary Approaches for the Grounding and Implementation of a Holistic Worldview”. The organizers recognize in fact that transitions towards an “integral ecology” mindset are already occurring in different fields (as in the UN Agenda 2030, in the 2015 Paris Agreement regarding climate change, or the Club of Rome’s proposal of a “New Enlightenment”). This conference wants to help stakeholders to recognize the transdisciplinary challenges involved in such a task. For this reason, the programme will consist of three afternoons each of which will explore a particular dimension of “integral ecology”: the natural-scientific; the socioeconomic and cultural; and the ethical-philosophical and theological. Significant is the presence of scientists among the speakers, such as Hartmut Graβl (Chairman of The Federation of German Scientists – VDW), Christine von Weizsäcker (President of the “European Network for Ecological Reflection and Action” – ECOROPA), Celia Deane-Drummond (Director of the Laudato Si’ Research Institute, Campion Hall, University of Oxford) and Ernst Ulrich von Weizsäcker (Professor of Environmental Policy, University of Freiburg, Germany, former Co-President of the Club of Rome).Speakers who will address the socioeconomic and cultural dimension include Ottmar Edenhofer (Director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research – PIK), Barbora Šedová (Co-leader of FutureLab – Security, Ethnic Conflicts and Migration, Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research), César Ferrari (Professor of the Economic Department in the School of Economics and Administrative Sciences, Pontifical Javeriana University, Bogotá, Colombia) and Fernando Felipe Sánchez Campos (Rector of the Universidad Católica de Costa Rica).In the last day, integral ecology will be approached in his ethical-philosophical and theological dimensions, with speakers like Michael Schuck (Loyola University Chicago), Patrick H. Byrne (Lonergan Institute, Boston College), Carmody Grey (Department of Theology and Religion, Durham University, England) and the Jewish theologian Jonathan Schorsch (School of Jewish Theology, University of Potsdam).On each afternoon, the primary contributors will be from the disciplines featured, while the panellists will come from different disciplines. At the end of each afternoon, the speakers will offer a series of “best practices” of the implementation of integral ecology, providing a practical complement to the more academic discussions.
