IBTS Ethics Conference: 4-6 May 2022, Amsterdam

The Heart of Christian Ethics: exploring The Sacredness of Life, Justice, Forgiveness, Truth and Love.

Ethics is for everyone! 

We want this conference to be a shared intercultural learning experience open to all. Therefore, we invite pastors, leaders, students, researchers, academics and those from, for example, the fields of politics, journalism, social work, development and education with an interest in the themes of the conference, to join in the conversation and learning experience.
