In this public lecture on “Ten Things Wrong with Environmental Thought and What We Can Do to Change Them,” Liam Heneghan, an environmental scientist teaching at DePaul University, asks if the environmentalism that we have received from the foundational figures in environmental thought provides us with the proper ground for an appropriate response to today’s ecological problems.  In a series of ten provocations he suggests we need a radical reassessment of our understanding of people’s relation to the natural world.

The Educating for Sustainability series, which brings environmental scholars and leaders to NYU for public lectures, is cosponsored by the Sustainability Task Force and the Environmental Studies program.
