CDST Dialogues on Technological Pollution (A Sensitive Spirit in a Technological World)
University of Craiova
This group combines the University of Craiova faculties of theology, physics, biology, mathematics, chemistry, and letters with representatives of local Catholic and Protestant churches, other area universities, and spiritual communities. The group meets weekly to hold discussions on a well-defined topic, as viewed from multiple interdisciplinary and religious perspectives, and these discussions will set the tone for expanded activities. The group also undertakes public speaking engagements, the creation of adult education courses, television and radio broadcasts, and the creation of a public library (Information Center). A print bulletin and electronic journal, a website/discussion forum and an international conference assist in outreach and broadening of the core group’s activities and perspectives. All plans are aimed at increasing the size and interdisciplinary representation of the society. Specific areas of focus will explore the nature of increased technological and scientific developments in society in relation to faith, ethics, and morality. Support for this project is provided by from the University of Craiova.
