For humankind, energy production and consumption present a double-edged sword. On the one hand, we need energy to survive; on the other hand, the production of energy with current technology poses a threat to our very survival as it is not sustainable from a long-term perspective. The emerging, highly interdisciplinary field of energy humanities (Szeman and Boyer “The Rise of Energy Humanities”, 2014) responds to these concerns by viewing energy as a key factor in contemporary human (social, cultural, political) relations.
Today, the question of ethics in politics and its importance for the sustenance of the democratic norms and institution is more important than ever. (Un)ethical leadership affects everyone and has the tremendous implications for our political and economic life. The Summit and Conference will address these implications in a day-two event.
