Sustainability as a Goal and Hallmark of Scientific Projects of Christians


Scientific research is more and more supposed to serve one or more of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs, while not formulated under particularly Christian auspices, can be traced back to God's command that humans exert good stewardship of creation. Using examples from the speaker's own drug and bioeconomics related research and teaching, this talk shows how Christians can tailor their work so that it serves one or more SDGs, concomitantly staying true to the Lord's stipulations. This constructive - rather than critical - approach will lend credibility to the Christian worldview of creation.
