Saturdays 4th March, 11th March, 18th March, 25th March, 10.00-16.30
This interactive and interdisciplinary module is designed to explore ethical issues related to the humanity’s impact on the physical environment. Environment and sustainability are increasingly on the agenda of policy-makers at the international and local levels. Pope Francis’ encyclical 'Laudato Si' (On Care for Our Common Home) is an important contribution to the discussion about the ethical and religious dimensions of climate change and sustainability. This timely module offers a framework for thinking about these and other related issues.
The module is taught over four consecutive-Saturdays as a stand-alone unit, with or without assessment, and as an optional module for the MA Contemporary Ethics programme.
