Architectural Ecologies Lab faculty Adam Marcus, Leslie Carol Roberts, and Chris Falliers are participating this month in the conference Next Earth: Teaching Climate Change Across the Disciplines, hosted by the Environmental Humanities Initiative at the University of California, Santa Barbara. The conference brings together critical climate and sustainability educators of every discipline, from the arts and humanities to the human and social sciences and the natural sciences, with a focus on sharing ideas to accelerate climate education and action in California and beyond. The conference is nearly carbon-neutral in that it takes place online and greatly reduces the enormous carbon footprint of the typical academic conference.
Marcus, Roberts, and Falliers are presenting The Ecopoesis Project, a a multi-year sequence of collaborative, interdisciplinary think-tanks exploring front-line concerns around ecology, climate, and spatial expression. Their presentation “The Ecopoesis Project: Advocating Logics of Future Coexistince” is part of the “Creative Pedagogies of Climate Change” panel and can be viewed online.
