Description

Environmental issues appear deceptively simple: science tells us what the problems are and how to solve them, and, for Christians, the Bible motivates us to care for creation. And yet, both in society in general as well as in the Christian church in particular, we cannot seem to agree on what to do regarding environmental issues. In this workshop, I set forth a general taxonomy, drawing from worldviews, ethical theories, science epistemology, science-policy studies, politics, and economics to help us better understand what excellent creation care consists of.

Through discussion using this taxonomy and role-play following models from science-policy studies, we will explore ways to bridge the differences people have regarding environmental issues.
