Aesth/Ethics in Environmental Change, transdisciplinary workshop
Hiddensee (Germany)24-28 May 2010
A transdisciplinary workshop was held on Aesth/Ethics in Environmental Change, arranged by the European Forum for the Study of Religion and the Environment, Religious Studies, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim, Biological Station of Hiddensee and Environmental Ethics, University of Greifswald a Hiddensee, from 24-28 May 2010.
Some of the questions that were addressed are: How can arts widen our perception of nature? How are aesthetics and ethics connected to each other in habitats, places and spaces? Can both be entangled into an integrated “aesth/ethics”? Can such a view be incorporated in the aims of nature conservation? How and where to seek, find and express the Sacred in nature? How are worldviews, values, rituals, visions, belief systems and ideologies at work within the human ecology? How can aesthetics, ethics, religion and ecology transcend contemporary political modes of environmental protection? How could they catalyse a truly transdisciplinary environmental science?
