Abstract

In his opening speech, Jacques Delors, President of the Commission of the European Communities, provides a sweeping overview of the problem in hand and makes a plea for the search for a code of environmental ethics. The first session deals with current and predicted environmental problems. The second presents a survey of man-nature relationships and of attitudes towards the environment. In the third, the question of what science should be done to identify the constituents and limits of environmental ethics is widely discussed. In the last session conclusions are drawn from the extensive discussions of the main issues raised during the conference. The participants agreed on the need to define a simple code of environmental ethics based on these discussions, a task now underway.
