My main interest is the broad but up to now quite heterogeneous field of environmental ethics. I just published a 800 page book about this, including anthropological and theological approaches as well as perspectives of politics and of economics. A special focus of my current research is the relation between ethics, science and polititics. I belong to the advisory board ‘Bioeconomy’ of the Bavarian government and am a member of the ‘Wissenschaftsplattform Nachhaltigkeit 2030’, which advises the German national strategy for sustainable development and the implementation of the SDGs. I am also the co-speaker of the Bavarian network ‘Sustainable Universities’. In that context, my research focuses on exploring in which way ethics and social transformation can/should be part of our understanding of rationality, science and education.
