Panel: “Imagining Anew the Future of the Earth”

Panel Overview:

Join us for this fascinating (and free) online discussion!

This trans-Atlantic conversation about climate change explores ancient and modern views of human relations to the earth from disciplines as seemingly different as legal studies and art, geography and ethics and from places as different as North America, Europe and Southeast Asia. While the “numbers” on climate change can pitch us into despair, these scholars offer hope that it is possible to change our individual and collective attitudes and behaviors in interacting with our environment—or at least to work toward such change.
