If nature/natural resources are threatened at a global scale, who benefits when we think of solutions as individual? Join Lauren Hudson in a West Village apartment for a special Black Friday Olio.
This Olio will discuss how the ‘production of nature’ has supported projects that have drastically changed our social landscape from the positive environmentalist movement of the progressive era, to global land grabs, population control, and corporate environmentalism. We will talk about the ways that the assumption of a ‘people-less’ nature shapes the ways we form solutions to climate crises. If nature/natural resources are threatened at a global scale, who benefits when we think of solutions as individual? Who benefits when our environmental discourse lays the blame at plastic straws?
Lauren Hudson is currently a doctoral candidate in Earth and Environmental Sciences at the CUNY Graduate Center where she writes about anti-capitalist organizing among women in NYC.
