This session will introduce participants to the field of Environmental Ethics from key starting points in environmental literature, feminist studies, new animism and social justice. We will cover the links between sustainability, justice, welfare, the distribution of environmental goods and the design of sustainable cities; as well as make some predictions about the future development of environmental ethics in light of other interdisciplinary studies and philosophies.
