Theology Facing Climate Change
June 21-25, 2022

Each day 3:00 to 6:00 PM (CET) in Amsterdam (UTC+2), which is, e.g., 8:00-11:00 PM WIB in
Jakarta (UTC+7) and 9:00-12:00 AM in New York EDT (UTC-4).


Climate change is not only one of the most urgent themes on the political agenda but also
increasingly a highly debated theme in theology. The awareness of environmental crisis asks
for fundamental theological reflection on the human relationship with the earth. The
impetus for theological reflection on ecology is that science and education are not enough to
understand our situation and to inspire our action. The environmental crisis affects our way
of life as a whole, including our deepest beliefs and convictions. Living in, what has been
deemed, the Anthropocene, the human being is more than ever in the power of managing
nature and more than ever responsible for its preservation. At the same time the ecological
crisis is so all-encompassing that it seems to reach beyond what is manageable. The
worldwide outbreak of Covid-19 makes us realize the increasingly visible connections
between the wellbeing of humans, other living creatures, and entire ecosystems. Is it
humanity’s destruction of biodiversity that creates the conditions for new viruses and
infectious diseases, such as SARS, MERS, Avian flu, Ebola, Zika, and the coronavirus disease?
The far-reaching character of what is at stake makes climate change and ecological
sustainability a deeply religious issue asking for adequate theological reflection.
