With Mary Evelyn Tucker
Earth Charter International Masterclass
Our current polycrisis has required new strategies to complement scientific, economic, and policy solutions to environmental problems. Diverse cultural values (especially traditional environmental knowledge) are now recognized as providing an important lens for conservation efforts, as was evident in the Montreal COP on biodiversity. Similarly, the impacts of environmental injustices are becoming more visible, from widespread pollution to climate change catastrophes. This talk will highlight some of the ethical responses arising from the recognition of the integration of ecojustice and ecospirituality.
Among other things, this Masterclass will be an opportunity to reflect on these issues and to address the question: What is Ecospirituality and Ecojustice and how could they be infused in education practice? (and why?)
