Eco Justice Course

Environmental Political Philosophy

Facilitated by Olivia Chandler from the University of Utah Environmental Humanities Program

Thursdays in June 6-7 p.m.

Spend a couple hours reading and exploring the basics of environmental political philosophy! This course will survey four main topics over four course meetings: ecofeminism, social ecology, eco-marxism, and deep ecology. Through a mix of readings and podcasts, participants can expect to engage deeply and cultivate an understanding of the intersections between environmental, social, and economic forces, and how these theories connect to today’s movements. No prior environmental political philosophy knowledge required! All materials will be provided.

Snacks will be provided every meeting, and dinner provided on the last meeting. There will be a childcare option at the Nature Center, with child-friendly activities to keep them busy while you learn. Please reach out with questions.
