Lunch talk: Transformations in the environmental movement
Bring your lunchbox and come join us for an interesting seminar where David Schlosberg will present and discuss his work on changes in the environmental movement .
In this talk David will talk about how the environmental movement have been changing the way they talk about the environment. In particular there has been a change in the language around the relationship between humans and the environment. David argues that there has been a shift from seeing human systems and nature separately, to a realization that human beings are embedded in relationship with ecosystems and nature. David calls this the new environmentalism. Joint his lunch talk to learn more about this.
David Schlosberg is Professor of Environmental Politics and co-Director of the Sydney Environment Institute at the University of Sydney. He works in environmental politics, environmental movements, and political theory and the intersection of the three with his work on environmental justice. Current applied work includes adaptation/resilience and food security policies with the City of Sydney, and the impacts of climate change as part of the University of Sydneys Research Hub on Health and Social Impacts of Climate Change for the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage. This presentation comes from an Australian Research Council-funded book project on sustainable materialism, or environmental movements and everyday life.
