The issue of growth has been a topic of national and international discussions in recent months, particularly since Pope Francis' encyclical on the environment and in preparation for the upcoming COP21 climate talks in Paris.
The Centre for Earth Ethics has now released the complete, 8hr+ footage of it's live-streamed conference entitled 'Ecology, Economy, and Ethics: Mobilizing for a Just Transition'. Conference partners included the Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology and GreenFaith.
The content of this conference very much reflected the ideas and sentiments shared at the FEN forum 'Healthy Earth, Endless Growth - Are they compatible?'.
Below is a statement from the Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology:
"We are happy to share the video recording of “Ecology, Economy and Ethics: Mobilizing for a Just Transition,” a conference held on September 16, 2015 at Union Theological Seminary in New York City. This conference, almost exactly between the release of the papal encyclical on the environment and the COP21 climate change summit, covered topics from divestment to energy ethics to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and with a special session on linking locally-rooted struggles to our broader climate movement. The Forum on Religion and Ecology was one of the co-sponsors of this event, along with the Center for Earth Ethics, GreenFaith, Sabin Center for Climate Change Law at Columbia Law School, and Forum 21 Institute. Mary Evelyn Tucker participated in the session on “Religions for the Earth: The Road to Paris.”
