BU Graduate Student Philosophy Conference: Sustainability and Environmental Ethics
“The event will confront issues of sustainability, climate responsibility, and environmental justice from a philosophical perspective. As a philosophical community, we recognize the urgency of addressing the climate and ecological crises and wish to provide a safe and diverse platform for philosophers to discuss the conceptual, ethical, political, aesthetic, and spiritual dimensions of climate change and sustainability as it is perceived today. Our chief motivation for organizing this conference is to show how the challenges we face in light of the climate and biodiversity crises are scientific, technological, and social, but also deeply and fundamentally philosophical.”
The conference will offer opportunities for discussion on a monumental and international scale, with speakers from Canada, Scotland, South Africa, and Switzerland, as well as the United States.
