Call for Participation | Normative Energy Ethics Workshop | deadline 15 Sept

Dear all,

From 23 to 25 November 2021, the research group "Philosophy of Engineering, Technology Assessment and Science" at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is hosting a workshop on normative energy ethics:

We warmly invite applications for participation via this registration form until 15 September 2021.

Theme We envision energy ethics as a space to develop systematic theoretical investigations capable of analyzing energy systems, infrastructures, technologies, and policies, evaluating stakeholders' values, judging the ethical merit of energy related choices, actions, and decisions. Moreover, we propose that reflections in energy ethics should also be able to evaluate courses of action morally. In this workshop, we would like to explore together how normative ethical perspectives may help address different energy issues and potentially anticipate ethical and socio-ecological problems. We are interested in discussing several perspectives, including but not limited to:

  • Capabilities Approach
  • Care Ethics
  • Virtue Ethics
  • Mobility Justice
  • Energy Sufficiency
  • Environmental, Climate, and Energy Justice

Format We plan an engaged and interactive event, consisting of a few presentations and many opportunities for discussions and networking, with participation of up to 50 people. We will likely organize this workshop according to a hybrid format that allows both in person and online participation. For questions, please contact:

We look forward to receiving your submissions! Best regards,

The Organizing Team Giovanni Frigo, Meike Hebich, Julia Merdes, Christine Milchram, Michael Poznic, Michael Schmidt, Lorenzo Simone, Rafaela Hillerbrand
