Institute on Religion in an Age of Science: The “Wicked Problem” of Climate Change: What is it Doing to us, and for us?
Join us for a week long all inclusive conference on Star Island!
Climate change is a “wicked problem” with overlapping causes and consequences in economic, ecological, ethical, and technological realms. As climate change continues to alter our planet, how can we use this monumental change as an opportunity for societal and spiritual transformation? “Uncertainty and ambiguity emerge here as resources, because they force us to confront those things we really want—not safety in some distant and contested future, but justice and self-understanding now.” – Sheila Jananoff. Coming to terms with what the “wicked problem” of rapid climate change might do for us will take creativity, imagination, and complex interdisciplinary thinking such as that done at IRAS conferences.
