Day: Thursday, Dec. 1st, 2016

In the context of great diversity and profound social inequalities, environmental injustice prevails. Conflicts between institutions promoting economic development (i.e., growth) and ecologists and civil society are rampant. This seminar will discuss alternatives emerging from groups, whose organisations are shaped by different cosmologies, products of their multiple ethnic origins, and by the profound philosophic and epistemological debates among social movements proposing different strategies for achieving progress, improving well‐being and conserving ecosystems.
