Green European Foundation, with the support of Green Foundation Ireland and in partnership with the Irish School of Ecumenics at

Trinity College Dublin, present a one-day

C O N F E R E N C E

"Green Values, Religion and Secularism
– Moving beyond the enlightenment division between science and religion"


THEME

Following the successful implementation of the project Green Values, Religion and Secularism over the past two years, and the publication of a book under the same name, our Conference will address themes which arose from the seminars held during the past year to promote the book. The debate will build on themes which emerged during the project activities over the past two years.

You can read more about the book, which is also available for downloading, here.

In an era of trending populism, our Conference intends to remind a wide audience of both academia and Green activists of the values underpinning European democracy and civil society, and to engage in a dialogue with a wide public on Green viewpoints on how these values can be practised in the world today.

The Green critique of modernity approaches a religious critique of humanism, understood as humans being the measure of all things. Green values are also critical of the idea of the isolated individual as the basis of social and economic life. What are the core values which inspire ecological and social activism?

GETTING THERE

The Irish School of Ecumenics is situated in the main Trinity Campus, beside the Department of Zoology. Here is a map to help you locate it.

As the Irish School of Ecumenics is near the Pearse Station end of the Trinity Campus, public transport is the best option as car parking on Trinity Campus is strictly forbidden, except for staff with permits. The location is close to the DART at Pearse Station and to bus routes that go via Pearse Street and Westland Row.

The easiest car parking is on either Merrion Square West or Fenian Street. There is also a car park at the Setanta Centre.


EVERYBODY WELCOME

Come and join the discussion!
