RESPONSIBILITY ACROSS BORDERS? CLIMATE CHANGE AS CHALLENGE FOR INTERCULTURAL INQUIRY ON VALUES

3 - 6 November 2009

Aarhus, Denmark Deadline for Abstract Submissions: Friday, September 25. Aarhus School of Business and Aarhus University invite contributions for the Global Dialogue conference Responsibility Across Borders. The Full Call and the Submission Guidelines can be downloaded from www.globaldialogueconference.org. Climate protection cannot be motivated by self-interest alone; it depends on our capacity to act morally. There are no practical or political reasons that can trump our moral responsibilities. Climate change is primarily a moral challenge: who are ‘we’, and why does ‘our’ future matter to each of ‘us’? This is a question for intercultural inquiry on values and responsibility across cultures. The aim of this conference is to address, in intercultural dialogue, this most important question in the international debate about climate change. We are seeking contributions in business, education, journalism, and philosophy. Contributions are especially welcome that question finance theory, and corporate responsibility theory and practice. Interdisciplinary inputs are also welcome that address questions in philosophy, religious studies, psychology, sociology, anthropology, environmental journalism, the role of journalism in promotion of intercultural dialogue, intercultural education, and education for sustainability/ecological responsibility. The Conference will bring together international scholars in the humanities and human sciences, educators, journalists, business researchers, and business representatives. The Conference will conclude with the award ceremony for the Global Dialogue Prize, one of the world's most significant recognitions for intercultural value research. The award is sponsored by the Grundfos Foundation. More information is available at www.globaldialogueconference.org. For further information, please contact Associate Professor Matthew Haigh at mhaigh@asb.dk or Associate Professor Johanna Seibt at filseibt@hum.au.dk.
