Ecological Consciousness and Climate Justice
School of Consciousness and Transformation PARW 6428 3.00
This course explores the philosophical shifts needed to bring about widespread ecological consciousness. At the root of both the current climate crisis and social collapse is a paradigm based on human domination of nature and of each other. Sustainability and well-being require a shift from the prevailing system of domination and extremism to a global consciousness and a socioeconomic system based on interdependence and partnership. This course will examine contemporary social movements, particularly those arising out of the Global South, that are leading efforts toward social justice and planetary survival.
