Explore the urgency of climate change and the moral imperative it poses to humanity through discussions of our responsibility to wild species and ecosystems and to present and future generations of humans dependent on critical ecological systems. What are the biggest environmental challenges and can we make a difference?
Through various readings and discussion, we will explore the urgency of climate change and the moral imperative it poses to humanity. Do we actually have any responsibility to wild species and ecosystems and to present and future generations of humans dependent on critical ecological systems? How do we value the Earth? Do we have a moral obligation to future generations to leave our land, rivers, oceans and wildlife better than we found it? Do you yourself have a personal relationship with the Earth? And if so, how do you define that?
What are the biggest environmental challenges facing us today and can we make a difference? How does the recognition of rapid, global environmental change challenge our traditional understandings of these obligations? These questions, and others like them will be explored in this series.
