The Institute for Social Ecology presented an 8-day intensive introduction to the philosophy and politics of Social Ecology. This 8-day intensive offered students an introduction to the dialectical philosophy and politics of Social Ecology. Using the lens of Social Ecology, students participated in four topical seminars focused the climate justice; alternatives capitalism; race; and the history of Social Ecology and radical movements. Students also participated in a practicum applying the principles of Social Ecology to their own actual (or imagined) activist campaigns. We are reviewing options for a similar program next winter.
*The philosophy class will be held in the evening to allow for NYC students with day jobs to attend.
