Civic Ecology: Healing and Growing in Community
March 3, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$10
Marianne E. Krasny, PhD, Professor, Department of Natural Resources, and Director, Civic Ecology Lab, Cornell University
Community gardening and forestry, participatory watershed restoration…in communities around the world there is a growing phenomenon. People are coming together to rebuild and restore local environments affected by crisis, disaster, or neglect. In New Orleans after Katrina, in New York after Sandy, in Soweto after apartheid, and in any number of postindustrial, depopulated cities, people work together to restore nature, renew communities, and to heal themselves. Marianne Krasny will share stories of this emerging grassroots environmental stewardship, arguing that humans’ innate love of nature and attachment to place compels them to restore nature and places that are threatened, destroyed, or lost.
