Ecological Ethics and Biblical Studies

The Ecological Ethics and Biblical Studies research group will provide a forum for dialogue about the ethical insights that our Christian communities can find in the Bible to transform character and practice within the ecosystems in which we live. The group will offer an opportunity for extended discussions between scholars and practitioners on ecological ethics from a biblical studies perspective. Each year will be centered on a different ethical dimension (hope, justice, and wisdom) that would bring focus to the discussion. All are invited to attend and take part in the discussion.
