On Tuesday, February 15, 2011, NYU's Educating for Sustainability lecture series will present Professor Liam Heneghan discussing "Ten Things Wrong with Environmental Thought and What We Can Do to Change Them: An Environmental Manifesto."
The lecture will take place from 6:00 - 7:30 PM in the Gould Welcome Center, 50 West 4th St., 1st Floor Barasch Theater. (NOTE: the location was moved from a previous venue.)
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 lecture series is presented by NYU's Environmental Studies Program and the NYU Sustainability initiative.
The lecture is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. Please RSVP by clicking the "RSVP Now" button in the upper right-hand corner.
