Conversations in the Disciplines: Depolarizing the Environment.
Friday, February 13, 2015
9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Location: SUNY-ESF Campus, Gateway Center
Event Description: From land use conflict to climate change to hydrofracking to a host of other issues, why are environmental issues so polarizing? Is it political opportunism? Is it scientific ignorance? Is it an academic monoculture, insulated from the realities of the world? What avenues, if any, exist for constructive engagement across political divides? What can we do as academics to promote constructive discussion at the difficult interface of environment, politics, culture and science?
Join us at SUNY-ESF for a thought-provoking Conversations in the Disciplines on the topic “Depolarizing the Environment." We will explore how the science of the environment can be better engaged with the political and social realms we inhabit, and how to foster a culture of intellectual openness at the difficult interface of environment, politics, culture and science.
