Caring for the future through ancestral time: engaging the cultural and spiritual presence of the past to promote a sustainable future

This project will investigate whether different understandings and practices of time are implicated in differing responses to intergenerational responsibility to “care for the future” and particularly the responsibility of the present generation to mitigate its impact on future climates. “We want to discover whether those who get involved with climate change activism from a faith position are motivated by a temporal horizon that is longer-term and more intergenerational than the cost-benefit paradigm that frames investment decisions in commercial and public agencies,” Michael Northcott said.
