Confronting the Political Economy of Ever More
Over the past half century environmentalism as both a philosophy and social movement has been gaining ground in just about every country. On some measures progress toward global sustainability would seem strong. Wildlife sanctuaries and marine reserves are multiplying. Eco-certification is strengthening. Energy efficiency is rising. And recycling is increasing by the day. Yet the earth continues to spiral into a worsening sustainability crisis. Why are seeming gains not taking us toward global-scale sustainability? Is the world community perhaps on the verge of turning the tables on this crisis?
Join UBC's Peter Dauvergne as he addresses these questions and presents the findings of his forthcoming book, Environmentalism of the Rich (MIT Press, 2016).
