Anthropocene Campus | Valuing Nature: Beyond The Vital Balance Sheet

Get this sound with YouTube MP3jam
Presented by Sabine Höhler (Environmental Humanities Laboratory, Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm) and Ioan Negrutiu (Institut Michel Serres, Ècole normal superieure de Lyon) Co-developed with Natalie Jeremijenko (Environmental Health Clinic, New York University) Moderated by Paul Edwards Nature’s values can be manifold: aesthetic, emotional, traditional, recreational, and monetary. Economically understood valued nature is turned into resource, with accounting tools from “polluter-pays” principles to “carbon-offset” schemes as common instruments to balance the human-nature relationship. But can and should we rely on such evaluation and exchange systems to break even with anthropogenic environmental change? Combining different knowledges and tools, the seminar makes a case for the inter- and transdisciplinary experiment to develop accounts that are socially, politically and economically accountable.
