Our dominant current socio-economic and political systems have become decoupled from the larger ecology of life. Our relationship with the natural environment and animals has changed dramatically over time. My Fellowship ‘Ethics of the Anthropocene‘ (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam) intends to discuss these past patterns and future pathways with (indigenous) religious leaders.
Indigenous cultures have a unique view of the world that’s distinct from the mainstream. Learning about indigenous cultures and their relationships with animals, may be a way we can begin to address the sustainability challenges we see today. Above the first interview in a series of conversations with religious leaders and their vision on how we should relate to nature and the animals within.
More interviews will follow!
