Social Responsibility: The Ethics of Caring for the World We Live In

 

“No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main... 

Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind and therefore never send to

know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.” --John Donne

The concept of social responsibility has become a catchword in recent years due to several problems facing our world today. Pollution, terrorism, climate change, population displacements, civil wars, emerging diseases from animals to humans (e.g. ebola), poverty, politics, human rights, among others are critical issues frightening our world. On the other hand, what opportunities do these challenges present to us as Christians? How do we respond to needs in the community and around the world?

In a broad sense, social responsibility is a moral obligation. It is necessary to consider the implications of our actions on other individuals, the community, and society at large. We have only one world, and we are all citizens of it. If we fail to care for the world and those who live in it, we ourselves will be affected by the suffering. God created us to be social beings and He expects us to care about each other’s welfare.

Through thought-provoking presentations, participants around the globe are invited to exchange research ideas and insights by addressing the broad range of issues that constitute social responsibility in all its forms in line with the conference,
