Funding bodies, journalists and civil society urgently request knowledge from the environmental humanities that can help us understand the challenges of our times. Concepts and practices such as "rights of nature," "ecological masculinities" or "ecopreneurship" seem to be vehicles for change, appreciated by society at large—but is this enough? This talk presents some examples of co-creation between academia and civil society, exploring collaborative attempts to make a difference and to stop, or at least limit, the ongoing ecocide—and opening up a discussion about how to keep expanding the possible influence of our matters of concern.

The lecture is hosted by the Oslo School of Environmental Humanities and is open for all.
