Bioethics Forum: Sustainability

Everytime we enter a grocery store we are offered the chance to buy reusable, environmentally responsible grocery bags. “Go Green” is an oft quoted phrase, and almost every business in every industry is touting its “green” initiatives.

The 8th Annual International Bioethics Forum in Madison, WI, takes on the topic of sustainability. How do we define sustainability? What are the most relevant technologies for us to understand? How are various sectors and organizations responding to issues of sustainability? What is the role of the individual decision maker? Does what one person does, or does not do, matter?

This two-day symposium brings together scientists, policy makers, teachers, law professionals and the general public to engage in discussion and learning about sustainability issues. CLE credit is available for law professionals. Stipends for the conference are also available to teachers and clergy.
