Reimagining the Good Life: Sustainability Ethics in Theory and Practice

April 18, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm


Please join us for a half-day conference on sustainability ethics and resilience. The conference, scheduled Wednesday, April 18, 2018, brings together philosophers and other environmental theorists to address questions at the intersection of sustainability, philosophy, and ethics. These questions include: How can we revise our idea of “the good life” to promote sustainability? How do we balance our responsibilities toward future generations against our responsibilities to those alive now? What are the possibilities and prospects for indigenous environmental resistance? Finally, what are our moral obligations in an era in which we can no longer rely exclusively on our governments to solve our most urgent environmental problems?
