This seminar is part of our project “Green Values, Religion and Secularism”, which promotes and serves as a space for the debate within the Greens towards a more coherent stance on the changing role of religion in European society. The project is based on the book with the same name, published by the Green European Foundation together with six national Green foundations in 2015.

The seminar in Dublin was entitled “Religion, Secularism and the ethical basic for social and environmental justice”. It featured a debate with relevant speakers, which was followed by a Q&A session. The list of speakers included:

  • Erica Meijers, Co-editor of the book “Green Values, Religion and Secularism” and Editor-in-chief of the Journal De Helling, published by the Dutch Green Foundation Bureau De Helling;

  • Francis Duffy, Green Party Councillor, Lecturer and Architect;
  • Catriona Russell, Lecturer in Environmental Ethics at TCD, formerly Director M.Phil in Ecology and Ethics at All Hallows College, Dublin
