BIOMES (Bridging Issues & Optimizing Methods in Environmental Studies)
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.
