Sustainable Scientific Energies? How will we reconsider our academic work in the light of the ecological crisis?
Bert Roebben (University of Bonn)
Jennifer Ayres (Candler School of Theology, Emory University)
Mary Hess (Luther Seminary)

There is a growing interest in sharing and discussing RE research findings internationally. But there is also a value conflict, when considering the ecological impact of organizing research in traditional ways and the growing awareness of climate challenges. This session discusses in a constructive live and virtual format the issue of how to convene in international settings for scholarly exchange. Are there other ways of doing research exchange and cooperation than through being actually present in conferences and physical meetings? What about our ecological footprint?
