Crash Course on the Ethics of Consumption

Pratt’s Center for Sustainable Design Strategies (CSDS) kicked off Green Week 2016 by offering its 6th annual Crash Course in Sustainability. Over 400 people registered for a full day of panels, workshops, screenings, and discussions. Faculty, students, and industry experts shared their passion and expertise for sustainability. For those who missed out, the whole event is available on the CSDS YouTube channel.

My talk was titled “Crash Course on the Ethics of Consumption.” I had the pleasure to present on a panel discussing Axiologue with one of its cofounders, Matt Nishi-Broach. Axiologue is a group dedicated to building an free, crowd-sourced, completely transparent ethical shopping app. You can download their Chrome extension Mindful Click from the Google Play store.

Presentation at the Central APA

I’ll be giving a paper titled “Confronting Atomistic Responsibility: Individual Responsibility and Climate Change” at the Central Division APA in Chicago next week. The panel I’m on is part of the International Society for Environmental Ethics (ISEE) group meeting and I’m really looking forward to hearing the other talks and meeting the other presenters. It looks like a great panel.

Stop by if you can. The panel I’m on is scheduled for Thursday, February 27, 7:40-10:40pm, at the Palmer House. The full conference schedule is here. There is a second ISEE panel on Saturday afternoon if you miss the first one.
