Earth Day 2013: Are YOU Responsible for the Earth's Well-Being?
Hofstra University and the Center for Civic Engagement presents Earth Day 2013. Are YOU Responsible for the Earth's Well-Being? If everyone in the world had the lifestyle of the average American, we would need 6.35 Earths in order to be able to produce all the goods and absorb all the waste. What is our responsibility for U.S. over-consumption and the ecological consequences thereof? How does it tie to our culture(s), and what ethical and moral issues are connected to this? These and other issues will be discussed in this roundtable session.
Organizer: Dr. Kari Jensen, Assistant Professor of Global Studies and Geography, and her Honors students of Cultural Geography
