Reading & Discussion facilitated by LINE
This month's forum will include examining how our relationship with nature is framed through the lens of mainstream environmentalism, as well as through deeper approaches. To support this, we will once again read selected pieces from Andrew Dobson's book, 'Green Political Thought'. Questions we might reflect on include: To what extent is mainstream environmentalism transformative in its approach? Will real solutions to ecological challenges be solved with outer fixes and human beings as they are, or is there a need to also work on our 'self'? How might pressures that green groups face to gain popular support affect the values they hold? Our discussion will look at reformist approaches as well as more radical ones.
Also within the forum, we will hear feedback from past events and things in the pipeline, such as Copenhagen. There will as usual be a slot for Resource Cycle
No charge and open to all. Donations welcome.
