Finding ways of living in viable ongoing relationship with our environment, including other human beings and societies, is a key issue for our time, and the focus of growing attention across all aspects of public and private life. How we respond to challenges of sustainability will be increasingly central to academic life in years to come, both in relation to research development and curriculum innovation.
As sustainability issues ripple through all aspects of human life, the Humanities have specific contributions to make, particularly in the cultural and community aspects of sustainability. This one-day CHRI conference and workshop has been organised to explore the implications of sustainability for the Humanities, and to address a range of intriguing and pressing questions in this area.
