Environmental Humanities Lunches

Environmental challenges are part of many areas of research and everyday life. The Environmental Humanities Lunches invite scientists and practitioners to critically reflect on their environmental challenges from the perspective of environmental ethics. After an introduction to the environmental challenge by our guests and a brief commentary from an ethical point of view, we offer a space for debate.

Confronted with an environmental challenge yourself and interested in a discussion? Contact us!
