Creation is endangered. If there is any evidence in the past decades that has influenced public awareness, it is the common responsibility of the world community to reflect upon and act in response to the ecological crisis. The seminar will seek to map the different efforts and initiatives in making the link between ecology, theology and justice visible, and by drawing attention to the potential for churches to develop viable, applied ethical responses and alternatives to the menace of nature from within their traditions. At the same time the seminar will provide insights into eco-theological discourses which emphasize the necessity of processes of mutual critique between ecology and theology in order to promote the common aim of a sustainable world for tomorrow.
