CALS Dean's Lecture: Robert V. Bartlett - "Sustainable Environment, Sustainable Democracy, Sustainable Politics"

Time: 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Location: Memorial Lounge, Waterman Building
Description: Sustainability politics has been around for three decades; environmental politics for five (under that label).  Over the same period, the political world has become considerably more democratic.  More societies and institutions have embraced various democratic processes, more people have become deeply engaged with the ideas of democracy, and there has been an explosion of scholarship and theorizing about democracy.  But are there any necessary linkages among environmentalism, sustainability, and democracy?  Professor Bartlett will address this question, drawing on his research on ecological rationality, deliberative democracy, and environmental governance.
