In four inspiring events we explore the way in which theology and religious studies can contribute to the radical repositioning of the relationship between human and non-human nature. Because what place does nature have in the religious traditions? And what place should it have?
The Faculty of Religion and Theology of VU Amsterdam cordially invites you to attend one or more events.
Such as the student event The Existential Dimensions of Climate Anxiety on 13 March, in which we discuss climate anxiety and work together on a collective transition ritual.
29 March we present and discuss 'sacred nature' from various interdisciplinary and interreligious perspectives. Join our academic conference Interdisciplinary and Interreligious Perspectives on Sacred Nature.
Or come to On Sacred Nature on 30 March, and listen to a conversation with the famous religious studies scholar Karen Armstrong, Planetary Health professor Pim Martens and director Mark Verkerk, creator of The New Wilderness, among others.
Would you rather have an experience? Then on April 15, immerse yourself in Brittle Earth: A Mass for the Universe. We bring the poem of the same name by the South African poet Antjie Krog to life with music, dance and an exhibition by fragrance artist Claudia de Vos.
