Environmental Ethics (online)

Explore the moral relationship between humans and the environment.

Content Detail

Human environmental ethics and values determine our individual actions and collective policies that influence how we treat the environment and how we build a more sustainable future. In this guided exploration of environmental ethics, we’ll consider our individual and collective responsibility towards nature and the future. We’ll discuss the conceptual foundations of our environmental values and consider different perspectives on our relationship with the natural world. You’ll have the opportunity to refine your own code of environmental ethics through readings and live online class discussion.

This program meets live online and will be recorded.
