Call for Papers: Ecological and Environmental Ethics
Oklahoma Society for Science and Faith Conference
Southern Nazarene University, Oklahoma City, April 23 – 25, 2009.
Science has determined that modern human civilization is detrimentally affecting local environments and the global climate. Scientists seek solutions to solve the pressing problems. In addition, society must make ethical decisions in discerning a proper course of action in caring for the environment and maintaining sustainable ecosystems for future generations. Numerous issues may inform ecological and environmental ethical decision-making within religious communities, including those with a Judeo-Christian perspective. Ethical decisions may incorporate: global stewardship; practical paradigms in making ethical decisions; community models and organizational paradigms that reflect environmentally ethical decisions; lessons from earth’s ancient past; future prospects and/or eschatological outlooks; the role of humans in the biosphere; and social and ecological justice. These dimensions are not exhaustive and additional perspectives are solicited to inform ecological and environmental ethical decision-making.
