Earth Ethics of Our Time with Karenna Gore at Fordham
Apr 1 at 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm
About Our Host:
Fordham University’s Center for Ethics Education was established in 1999 to contribute to Fordham’s commitment to cultivating lifelong habits of critical thinking, moral reflection and articulate expression. Drawing upon the Jesuit traditions of sapientia et doctrina (wisdom and learning) and homines pro aliis (men and women for others) and the rich cultural diversity of New York City, the Center sponsors activities that provide students, faculty, professionals and the public with knowledge and skills to study, inform and shape a just society that nurtures the full-flourishing of all members of the human family.
The Center’s mission is organized around three interacting motifs concerning ethical problems and possibilities for the dawning of this new century. The interdisciplinary synergy of the Moral Responsibility, Global Ethics, and Responsible Science motifs extends Fordham University’s national and international role in finding new means for reanimating social hope and trust and creating languages to articulate the dignity of human persons across philosophical, cultural, and religious differences.
