Intetgrating Climate Change and Development Ethics

The Rock Ethics Institute at Penn State University is organizing a conference to be held at Penn State University on April 15 and 16, 2010 on “Integrating Climate Change and Development Ethics.”  Those interested in presenting a paper should submit an abstract and a two page CV by October 30, 2010.
Because climate change can adversely affect the ability of human development prospects and climate change policies should take into account human development needs, there is a need to integrate climate change and human development ethics. There is also a significant opportunity for climate change and human development ethicists to learn from each other about the ethical issues that should be understood if climate change and human development ethics were integrated. This conference will explore the linkages between climate change ethics and human development ethics. For more information on the call for papers see:
