Ms. Camilla Schippa, Director of the Institute for Economics and Peace speaks on Interfaith and the Global Peace Index.
Date: Dec. 6, 2013
Session: Interfaith Partnerships
Topic: Living For the Greater Good: The Moral Foundation for Inspiring Innovative Change
Recent global economic scandals, endemic corruption, ongoing human exploitation and environmental degradation have demonstrated that technological and economic development have outpaced the spiritual and moral consciousness of the times. Development needs to be driven by a moral vision and a commitment to ethical principles. Religious and spiritual leaders can and should be involved in calling all to apply their gifts in service of the greater good. This session will explore the application of “principles in the public sphere” and how to drive moral innovation for a truly sustainable future.
