The aim of this seminar is the critical reflection of different environmental challenges. Every two weeks we have experts confront us with a new environmental challenge in order to discuss it from an ethical perspective. In the weeks in between we familiarize ourselves with the respective issues.


Students can apply learned concepts, theories and principles of environmental ethics in discussion to presented texts and lectures and can analyze and discuss the issues in a multi-layered and differentiated way with the colloquium participants. The students learn to critically discuss scientific texts from the fields of environmental ethics.
