The Solidarity, Sustainability, and Non-Violence (SSNV) Newsletter
The SSNV newsletter is a monthly digest of news and current research on the most critical global issues at the intersection of technology, society, and religion. Technology includes the entire range of tools made by human hands. Most of the human and social sciences are taken into account. The Bible is used as a primary source of wisdom, but sources from other religious traditions are consulted. The analysis approach is evidence-based, but specific methods such as system dynamics and mimetic theory are used when appropriate. The United Nations' Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are used as point of reference.
