Selected Conference Talks & Activities
2015 International Congress for Conservation Biology, Montpellier, France
Plenary talk “Environmental Values in Conservation: Ethics, Economics and Pragmatism”.
This invited talk to 2000 people received a standing ovation (click here for audience comments). Unfortunately there was no video, but a low quality sound recording is being transcribed and that transcript will be posted here when finished.
2014 International Conference on Degrowth, Leipzig, Germany
“Degrowth for Ecological Sustainability and Social Equity”. My roles: Scientific committee, workshop organiser/facilitator, presenter and debate. Workshop on “Exploring Transformation to a Radical Alternative Gesellschaft: Economy, Ethics, Ecology”. Presentation “Values and Ethics in an Alternative Degrowth Society”. Semi-plenary and debate with Nico Paech. The session was called: “Scenarios for a Post-Growth Economy”. The lecture theatre was packed and people were being turned away at the door. My talk was entitled “A Future Social Ecological Economy: Reality-Transformation-Utopia” and was well received. On Vimeo there is a video of the talk and the debate [click links].
2010 Austria, Bank of Austria, Vienna
“Bulldozing Biodiversity: How to Trash Ecosystems Efficiently”. Public lecture held on Bank premises. The talk was videoed and simultaneously translated into German. The message was probably not well received by the bankers present and the video never appeared through their website. The sustainability officer finally released a copy after over a year of internal ‘problems’. There is a copy of the talk on Vimeo in English and German; also you can click here for overheads of the talk as a pdf.
