Religion, Spirituality and Paradigms

The search for values creating a sustainable and equitable society

A panel discussion with
Laurent Ledoux, Philosophie & Management, Joël Van Cauter, philosopher & economist,
Frans Goetghebeur, author, former chairman The European Budhist Union

The Club of Rome is addressing the root causes of the challenges facing humankind. We do so with a systemic, holistic and long-term approach. We wish to contribute to a shift from the dominant paradigms to a radically new world view. It is obvious that science and technology alone are not enabling a more humane and just society. Values are central in any paradigm. They are largely inspired by beliefs, religions and philosophy, not based on science. A better understanding of their role can help to meet more successfully the challenges of the 21st century

In 2012 The Club of Rome initiated a programme “ValuesQuest” to explore the issue and map out a way forward. The CoR-EU wishes to contribute to the debate. This lecture is a first initiative, which may be followed by other discussions, seminars or publications.
