Science, Religion and Sustainable Development
2006 (English)In: Science, religion, and society, M. E. Sharpe: Armonk, NY , 2006Chapter in book (Other scientific)
The world’s ecological crisis gives a new urgency to the dialogue between science and religion. Unless people of different worldviews (religious or secular ones) can arrive at a shared concern of the natural world, the ecological integrity of our planet is in danger of being completely undermined. In response to the world’s ecological crisis the governments of the world have united behind a common vision for the future: the vision of a sustainable society or a sustainable development, and a policy program for its implementation in the twenty-first century (Agenda 21). What is the content of this new “ethic of sustainable development” and what role have science and religion played in the processes leading up to the development of this vision of a sustainable development and what role could they play in the future? These questions are addressed in this article.
