How Do Our Values Influence Environmental Policy?

Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods 4815 NE 7th Ave

Thursday, May 31 2018, 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM


Free Community Conversation with Oregon Humanities Project on Values and the Environment


Event Types > Community Events


Please join us and bring your neighbors for this thoughtful conversation to unpack complex ideas and policies. Free! Free food!

Description: Most of us would agree that natural resources and our surrounding environment have value, but what that value is—and how to protect it—are usually up for debate. Given competing interests and visions of the public good, how do we protect our common resources such as land, water, and air? Join philosopher Monica Mueller to explore our environmental values and question how those values are reflected—or not reflected—in current local, national, and global environmental policies.
