Ethics in environmental decision-making: From individual acts to global outcomes?
Alex Godoy-Faúndez (Chile) and Jan-Christoph Heilinger (Germany) were awarded the GYA North-South Interdisciplinary Grant in 2016/17 for their project: Ethics in environmental decision-making: From individual acts to global outcomes?
Alex made a research visit to Munich, Germany in September 2016, during which the project proponents worked on a joint paper about the topic of ethics in environmental decision-making, based on preparatory literature research done by research assistants in Chile and in Germany. Work on the paper is still in progress.
The project connected two GYA members from very different disciplines – philosophy and environmental science, as well as established a working connection between both researchers and their institutions in Chile and Germany.
