Durabilité, restauration et justice de l’environnement en Afrique

30 juin - 2 juillet 2011
Akoka, Nigéria, Conference à l’niversité de Lagos

Africans, like the Greek and Western philosophers, identified fire, air, earth (land), and water as the contact agents in existence. They evolved principles and values with which to relate to these elements such that while enabling and furthering human existence and living, these agents would also be sustained. Unfortunately, as a result of non-altruistic theories and actions, these natural resources are either endangered or polluted. Over population, urbanization with its negative survivalist effects has created environmental imbalances and human injustices making the need for justice, restoration, and sustainability inevitable. Other human actions have also continued to create survivalist responses which do not translate into positive effects in the long-run. In Africa, these common problems have been responded to with general and universal principles which because of their inevitable metaphysical bias may not work for the African environment in the long run. Africa therefore needs principles (theories) and actions that take into consideration their peculiar mind-set, history, and culture to provide an authentic base for genuine environmental and human restoration.
