On the 15th of February, Tim Ingold marked the launch of the Anthropocene colloquium! The online talk attracted more than 1300 registrations and there was a peak audience of more than 500 simultaneous viewers!
Many thanks to all participants! If you miss the live talk, you can watch the video online!
Ingold put forward a powerful anthropological and philosophical reconceptualization of the concept of sustainability beyond the current emphasis on achieving measurable goals.
Sustainability cannot be about achieving measurable goals as it cannot be of some things and not others. It must be for everyone and everything, and not for some to the exclusion of others. Is it possible to build an economy around this kind of sustainability? How can we turn the sustainability of everything into policy? Can it be designed and enforced from the outside?
The talk was followed by a fascinating Q&A session.
The session was highlighted in regional, national and international news, including Diário de Coimbra, Ineews, and e-Global.
The next talk will take place on the 1st of March with Anna Tsing. The complete program is available HERE.
