Students in the Theological Ethics & the Environment class have spent the semester learning about issues and debates in ecotheology and environmental ethics from a Christian perspective. Our study together especially developed these key concepts: theology of creation, theological anthropology, shalom, covenant, Sabbath, justice, stewardship, intrinsic vs. instrumental value, individual-systemic tensions in environmental issues and responses, differently ‘centered’ ethics (androcentric, biocentric, ecocentric, theocentric), and classical ethical approaches (deontological, teleological, and virtue ethics). The narrated digital poster project asked students to put key concepts from the class to work in providing theological and ethical grounding for responding to a local environmental issue. We hope you learn something and are inspired to take action!
