Professor Kofler will outline how scientific and value-based knowledge can inform technology decision-making in ways that are both context-dependent and global in scope. The inadequacy of dominant theories in environmental ethics to support such decision-making will also be presented and an alternative ethos proposed: one that respects the interconnectedness of human and environmental health and invites technology into that relationship to augment the flourishing of both.

Hosted by: Institute for Sustainability, Energy, and Environment (iSEE)

In conjunction with: Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology, Department of Agricultural and Consumer Economics, Department of Atmospheric Science, Department of Entomology, Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences, School of Earth, Society, and Environment, School of Integrative Biology
