La unidad es clave ante los nuevos retos que la crisis sanitaria plantea en Asia

A medida que la pandemia de COVID-19 se atenúa lentamente, persisten sus graves consecuencias sobre la vida de las personas, en toda Asia y en el resto del mundo. Además del sufrimiento y de la trágica pérdida de vidas provocados por el virus, las esperanzas en un futuro mejor se han visto truncadas por el aislamiento social, la recesión económica, el aumento del desempleo y la pobreza.

New Year’s resolutions: a biblical reflection

The year often begins with making firm resolutions, taken with earnestness and commitment. The following weeks and months are familiarly littered with broken promises and failures.

Contemporary Ecotheology, Climate Justice and Environmental Stewardship in World Religions

Ecothee Volume 6th-Orthodox Academy of Crete Publication

The 6th International Conference on Ecotheology and Environmental Ethics – Ecothee-19 – took place in September 2019 and brought together 40 academics, church leaders and activists from different parts of the world. 

This book, published by Embla Akademisk, consists of articles developed in the aftermath of the conference. 

This book is intended as a scientific anthology showing the diversity of ecotheology found in various religious traditions. 

It is divided into three main sections: Theological and philosophical reflection, Ethics and best practices and global contributions. We are convinced that the book and its contributions will help to provide a deeper insight into the diversity that exists within global ecotheology.
