Consuming the Environment

Consuming The Environment 2017 - multidiciplinary approaches to urbanization and vulnerability

Conference and workshop 3-5 December

Climate change, environmental degradation, people escaping war and hard living circumstances are questions the media report on daily. How severe is it? What do people know, how are they informed and what are they thinking? What are media telling us? In what way are environmental concerns dealt with in different academic disciplines? In popular culture? What about education and politics? What more do we need know?
