Organized by the Lanza Foundation, the Orienting Oneself in the Transition project offers reflections and discussions on ethics in scientific research and the life of the civil community. The Lanza Foundation initiative celebrates the 800th anniversary of the University of Padua and is part of the “LiberaMente“ series of events organized around themes based on the University’s motto: Universa Universis Patavina Libertas.
On 10 February, Project Coordinator Simone Morandini of the Lanza Foundation’s Progetto Etica, Filosofia e Teologia, introduces the Culture for City Life study seminar. Opening talks welcome Riccardo Saccenti (University of Bergamo) to discuss L’etica civile come orizzonte, and Paolo Gubitta (University of Padua) to discuss Purpose Driven Communities. The Culture for City Life study seminar then welcomes Olivia Guaraldo (University of Verona Delegate to Public Engagement), Maurizio Tira (University of Brescia Rector), and Fabrizio Dughiero, (University of Padua Vice Rector of Innovation and Business Relations)
Through stimulating discussions, seminars, and cultural events the Orienting Oneself in the Transition project aims to improve our understanding and the practice of ethics at the theoretical level and in particularly decisive areas such as the sciences that deal with the earth and those of human life. Lanza Foundation research projects are based on Ethics, Philosophy and Theology, Ethics and Medicine, and Ethics and Environmental Policies
