Ecological sensitivity (and Christianity?)

seminar room from group Science, Reason and Faith.

Encyclical Laudato si'

Jordi Puig studied Biology at the University of Navarra in 1990. He obtained in 1995 the doctorate from the Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenieros de Montes, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. Professor of EIA at the University of Navarra since 1996 and Visiting Professor at the University of California, Berkeley (2002-2003) and the University of Manchester (2004), he has been Director of Master's Degree in Biodiversity, Landscapes and Sustainable management since its implementation (2007-2014). Since December 2013, he has chaired the Commission in charge of launching the new Degree in Environmental Sciences at the University of Navarra, which was recently implemented. His academic interest has focused on the study of the interaction between humans and the earth to which they belong. He is also currently interested in the cultural work and educational necessary to promote the re-finding of the value of nature and its people, and the commitment to environmental justice.


Contemporary cultural sensitivity to the environment does not seem to go hand in hand with Christianity. This seminar room proposes to reflect on seven aspects of environmental value with which cultural environmentalism connects connaturally, asks the question of how to increase this account, and at the same time initiates a search for how, starting from these aspects of environmental value, a meeting with Christianity can be established.
