Description

In this interactive weekend course, students, faculty, and local religious leaders engage in a real-time simulation of the Parliament of World Religions. The task is to draft international protocols that address the climate crisis. Racing a deadline of Earth Day, April 22, 2015, the delegates must uphold the beliefs and practices of designated faith traditions—Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, and Confucian/Daoist—while crafting policy guidelines for governments and their assigned denominations. Delegates will work in small groups and larger plenary sessions to negotiate issues of technology, theology, culture, politics, economics and ethics. (2 credits)
