UPDATE: Listen to the audio recording of this event.
Has environmentalism lost its way? What does sustainability really have to do with a healthy planet? Please plan to join a dialogue with Paul Kingsnorth, author of “Confessions of a Recovering Environmentalist” in the January/February 2012 issue of Orion, on January 18th, at 4 p.m. Eastern, 1 p.m. Pacific.
According to Kingsnorth, environmentalism has effectively died: it’s not only been absorbed by the political left, which has diluted its ecocentric message; it’s also become enamored with “sustainable economics,” which, according to Kingsnorth, amounts to business-as-usual without the carbon. Has the movement’s original deep connection to nature been lost? Are green projects doing more harm than good? Kingsnorth will be joined by authors Lierre Keith and David Abram to discuss and expand on these thoughts during this live web event. This event is free and open to all, but registration is required—please register here.
