“What next for environmentalism?”

The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and the Institute for Futures Research will be hosting a debate entitled “what next for environmentalism?” which considers the relevance of the environmentalism narrative to a broader audience and the role of the environmental movement in the achievement of an equitable future. Issues such as the role of ecomodernism in creating a new narrative for environmental sustainability and the question of a more integrated view of the environment in economic development will form part of the discussions.

Participants include WE-Africa collaborator  Saliem Fakir, head of the Policy and Futures Unit at the WWF South Africa.
