ABOUT THE SYMPOSIUM
The richness and diversity of contemporary environmental philosophy remains largely absent from the everyday discourse and decision-making processes of environmental governance. This symposium seeks to envision a richer and more inclusive environmental governance, proposing specific steps for how environmental philosophy can better engage current governance practices.
In addition to the keynote speakers, this symposium will feature eight more exciting presentations, with time for critique, conversation, and networking with a diverse group of professionals in philosophy and environmental governance. It is our vision for this event to build ongoing conversation and collaboration. Join us!
