International Conference on Environmental Ethics, Biodiversity and Climate Change

The conference aims to determine the most pertinent issues in the discipline of environmental ethics in order to elaborate a systematic intellectual frame that can adequately engage complex questions of ethical environmental practice with a view to also supporting, inter alia, international organizations, States and local groups, in their response to the changing stakes and challenges of biodiversity and climate change.
Within this larger context, the conference will focus on the most pressing practical questions and theoretical dilemmas of environmental ethics:
- questions of the relation between science ethics, biodiversity, and climate change;
- questions of ethics, politics, and environmental governance;
- the response to looming environmental and ethical uncertainty, controversies surrounding the precautionary principle, the nature of cost-benefit analysis;
- debates concerning value and biodiversity, adaptation, mitigation, the ethical impasses of distributive justice, and the status of indigenous knowledge, etc.
