HOW CANWE HELP TO RAISE AN ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS IN THE SOUTH AFRICAN CONTEXT?

Ernst M. Conradie

Abstract


This article reflects on the question formulated in the title, i.e. “How can we help to
raise an environmental awareness in the South African context?” It analyses some
of the assumptions underlying this question. It argues that environmental problems
cannot be addressed only through information and education, through science and
technology or through governments and the laws that they promulgate. Christians
can contribute to an environmental ethos through helping to articulate a moral
vision for society, by practicing ecological virtues and by engaging in moral
decision making in every sphere of public life.
