Philosophy and the Climate Crisis conference

When and Where

Saturday, April 29, 2023 9:30 am to 5:00 pm


We are very excited to announce the second Philosophy and the Climate Crisis conference, to be held on Saturday, April 29 on Zoom. We hope you will join us!

Climate change presents a major challenge for our time. It is expected to greatly increase global temperatures, “natural” disasters, political instability, war, disease, drought, and famine in this century. Its impacts are far-reaching and distributed unequally. Building on our earlier 2021 conference, this day-long conference aims at making progress in practice. We will get together to work toward addressing the climate crisis through teaching, curriculum development, event organizing, public philosophy, and institutional advocacy and change.

The basic schedule is as follows:

9:30 ET / 2:30 UK   |   Welcome and Opening Remarks
9:45-11 ET / 2:45-4 UK   |   Teaching and Climate Curriculum Development
11:30-1 ET / 4:30-6 UK   |   Shifting Academic Institutions
2-3:30 ET / 7-8:30 UK   |     Public Climate Philosophy
3:45-5 ET / 8:45-10 UK   |   Strategic Planning Forum: Next Steps on Climate
