Plenary / Interactive
english language

In 2017, Alpbach welcomes Ethics in Action, an initiative that brings together a selected group of religious leaders, academics, civil society representatives, and practitioners to reflect on the moral and ethical dimensions of current social problems. In this session, one aspect of the meeting is discussed: “sustainable development”. Together with participants, senior religious leaders try to identify actions that religion(s) can take to support shared well-being, human dignity and the common good.
