Hinduism and the Ethics of Creation Care with Pankaj Jain

Tara C. Trapani

In August, we shared information on the Religion and Ethics of Creation Care series being hosted this fall/winter by the Thanks-giving Foundation.

The second installment in that series is coming up next Monday, October 3 at 5pm EST, and will once again feature a Forum Advisory Group member as the speaker.

This month, Pankaj Jain of FLAME University will be speaking on “Hinduism and the Ethics of Creation Care.”  Cybelle Shattuck of Western Michigan University will be responding. Register here for this free, online event. 


About the series:
This is a 6 part monthly series featuring scholars representing Judaism, Buddhism, Native Americans, Islam, Christianity & Hinduism. Speakers from different religious traditions will explain how their religious tradition understands the ethics of creation care. In addition to addressing the value of creation in itself,  of particular concern will be the relationship of creation care to human dignity, economic justice, and migration stimulated by changes in the climate. Participants will learn how each religion understands what it means to be human in relation to the rest of the natural world, and the particular responsibilities of humans toward the natural world and their fellow humans. Each presentation will be followed by a brief response and the opportunity to ask questions of the speaker.
