International Transdisciplinary Conference: Environmental Justice, August 21-25, 2022, Lassalle Institut, Switzerland

The second International Transdisciplinary Conference on Environmental Justice will take place at the Lassalle Institut, Switzerland, from August 21 to August 25, 2022. The conference offers an inter- and transdisciplinary platform for dialogue between the scientists, economists, ethicists, and philosophers concerned by the imperative of environmental justice. It is aimed at researchers, students, activists and decision-makers engaged in the socio-ecological transformation.

At this upcoming conference, the dialogues will focus in particular on following the guiding questions: What is the value of the future? How can the socio-ecological transformation be justified and promoted? Which ethical and cultural frames can contribute to a transdisciplinary “target knowledge” and pave the way to successful socio-ecological transformation?

  • Daniel J. Lang, Leuphana University of Lüneburg
