Caring for Future Generations

On October 26, 2019 in the workshop entitled “A New Ethos of Entrepreneurship Based on Spirituality. The Philosophy of Caring Management in the New Economy” at the Babes-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.

László Zsolnai, Gábor Kovács and András Ócsai gave a presentation on Caring for Future Generations. They argued that to achieve meaningful change in the humanity-nature nexus we have to reinvent our economic and social functioning. The basic question is how can we become ecologically conscious agents who operate within limits, that is, uses only our “fair earth share” and contributes to the richness of life on Earth? Living a frugal lifestyle, restoring natural ecosystems, preserving the cultural heritage of humankind, and inventing life saving knowledge are the key actions that we can do for future generations. Zsolnai, Kovács, and Ócsai concluded that improving the position of future generations enhances the future of our own generations too.
