WORKSHOP ON ETHICAL VALUES IN ENVIRONMENTALISM (2013)

WORKSHOP ON ETHICAL VALUES IN ENVIRONMENTALISM (2013)

This chair promoted a study on the ethical values present in people who actively lead or collaborate in environmental organizations, which was based on a survey aimed at these people and the conclusions of the Workshop on Ethical Values in Environmentalism (Summary) , which took place on November 21th, 2013 at the University of Alcalá.

The main lines of the survey and the workshop were:

1. What philosophical or theological position best defines the motivation of a person concerned with environmental conservation?
2. What ethical values accompany a person who actively promotes environmental conservation? What is his/her position on bioethical issues not directly related to environmental conservation (beginning and ending of human life, embryo research, cloning, etc.)?
