8th November 2017: Symposium "Sustainability and Humanities: linking social values, theology and spirituality towards sustainability", Canterbury Christ Church University, United Kingdom

Aims

The aims of the “Sustainability and Humanities: linking social values, theology and spirituality towards sustainability” are as follows:

  • I.   to provide teaching staff at universities active and/or interested on humanities and sustainable development with an opportunity to display and present their works (i.e.  curriculum innovation, empirical work, activities, case studies practical projects);
  • II.    to foster the exchange of information, ideas and experiences acquired in the execution of teaching and research, especially successful initiatives and good practice;
  • III.   to discuss methodological approaches and projects which aim to offer a better understanding of how the humanities may contribute towards the debate on sustainable development;
  • IV.    to network the participants and provide a platform so they can explore possibilities for further cooperation.

Last but not least, a further aim of the event will be to document and disseminate the wealth of experiences on the humanities and sustainable development teaching available today. To this purpose, the peer-reviewed book titled “Sustainability and Humanities: linking social values, theology and spirituality towards sustainability” will be published, with all accepted papers. This will be part of the award-winning “World Sustainability Series”, published by Springer, one of the world´s top five scientific publishers.

Profile of Participants

Delegates attending the Symposium will come from a cross-sectoral range of areas. These are: 

  • i.research and  teaching staff
  • ii. student groups;
  • iii. members of university administrations;
  • iv. project officers and consultants;
  • v. other people interested in the field.

It is believed that this wide range of participants will help to outline the need for integrated approaches towards integrating the humanities in sustainable development (and vice-versa) and, hence contribute towards advancing this field of work even further.
