Ethics in Environment and Democracy is the final of a five-part series to explore and energize ethics scholarship and education at UBC.

About this event

Ethics in Environment & Democracy is the final installation of Ethics for UBC, a five-part speaker series that will explore the current landscape of ethics scholarship and education across the Vancouver and Okanagan campuses of our university.

In attending this interactive 75-min panel discussion, you will have the opportunity to learn about the current ethics-related endeavours taking place at UBC, pressing ethical issues that exist across a wide range of disciplines, and the ways in which you can become more involved.

This panel discussion will focus on ethics across a variety of disciplines, from animal welfare and ecophysiology, to democracy and ecofeminism.
