Religion and Sustainable Development: Opportunities and Challenges for Higher Education

Voorkant
Cathrien de Pater, Irene Dankelman
LIT Verlag Münster, 2009 - 182 pagina's
How are the different worldviews and religions as well as their alleged contributions to sustainable development incorporated in the academic disciplines of religious studies and theology? This theme is explored from the perspectives of Jewish, Islamic, Buddhist, Hindu, modern and indigenous spiritual traditions worldwide. Cases are presented from Western Europe, North America, Malaysia, India, and Africa. This publication shows that the cross-cutting of the arenas of sustainable development and religion in higher education constitutes a diverse yet little explored field, and presents the first steps to document its bounty.
