Philosophy and the Environment. How Can Thinking Help?

We've launched #DreamBigAtHome!

Our new lockdown website has hundreds of activities and games to do at home, weekly challenges to try and a regular programme of live workshops and events online, as well as information on how our groups can operate during the COVID-19 outbreak.


Event date: 
24 November 2020 - 6:00pm - 7:00pm
Event location: 
How should we think about our planet? As a giant animal, as our home, our mother, something else? Do these different ways of thinking about the planet change how we treat it? Is there one which is best? Why?

Join philosopher Amber Donovan to explore Mary Midgley’s Gaia theory and do some philosophical plumbing of your own to help answer these questions!

Pre workshop challenge: Using anything you like, create something which shows how you see our planet to share with the group. You could make a collage, take a photo, make a zine, paint, draw, etc.
