Nature in the Balance – JRI Conference

18 March, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

Nature in the balance

Can we put a value on the environment, and should we?

 ForMission Events are very excited to host a conference in partnership with John Ray Initiative

The conference will address the following key questions, amongst others:

What is the value of non-human nature? Does it only have value if it is useful to humans?

Come along to find out more!

In this conference we investigate different views on valuing nature. We will begin by carefully explaining the Ecosystem Services concept. We will then explore the theological and ethical implications of this idea, and whether other frameworks might be preferable. In our seminars we will explore some of the practical outworking of environmental ethics and theology in more detail.

This conference will be of interest to Christians and others who have an interest in nature conservation and the environment. It is intended to deepen our thinking as we consider how to respond theologically and ethically to the present environmental crisis.

When: Saturday, 18 March 2017 from 09:30 to 16:30 (GMT)

Where: Conference Suite (Gold-coloured building), Bournville College – 1 Longbridge Lane, Northfield, Birmingham, B31 2TW

Ticket prices: £48
