Dear Colleagues,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the conference of the International Society for Environmental Ethics which will be hosted by the Chair for Philosophy and Ethics of the Environment at the Christian Albrechts Universität Kiel from July 22nd to 25th 2015. The theme of the conference will be "Environmental Ethics between Action and Reflection".

The conference theme mirrors the research done at the Chair for Philosophy and Ethics, which spans a diverse spectrum of topics, ranging from nature protection (BioMOT; SuWaRest) and agriculture (Landnahmen) to ethical aspects of energy production (ENTRIA), the German Energiewende (Energiekonflikte) and climate engineering (SPP 1689) and sustainable lifestyles (BfN). These diverse topics are linked by our approach that concurrently aims at comprehensive philosophical reflection and concrete, action-guiding results. Finally, with the Gustav-Radbruch-Netzwerk, the Chair for Philosophy and Ethics also hosts a truly interdisciplinary, university-wide network of environmental research activities – which will contribute to the conference with a one-day-pre-conference side event.

We hope that this welcome intrigues you to join us in Kiel in July 2015!

On behalf of the local organizing committee,
Konrad Ott, Professor of Philosophy and Ethics of the Environment at the CAU Kiel
