The EurSafe 2021 is hosted by the University of Fribourg Environmental Sciences and Humanities Institute (UniFR_ESH Institute). The research at the institute scrutinizes environmental challenges and methods for resolving problems in the fields of the environment, sustainability and climate change from an ethical perspective. It places a particular emphasis on ethical issues arising from environmental practice and the challenges of normative environmental justice and the differentiation of responsibilities.
The European Society for Agricultural and Food Ethics (EurSafe) is an independent organisation, which provides a network for those who have an interest in the ethical issues involved in agriculture and food supply. The society is an international, interdisciplinary and cross-cultural organisation, which bridges academia and the world of practice. After a successful first Congress in Wageningen in 1999, EurSafe was established in 2000 during the second Congress in Copenhagen.
