CONFERENCE – 5th Latin American (Inter-American) Environmental Philosophy Conference 2013

The Fifth Latin American (Inter-American) Environmental Philosophy Conference will be held in Puerto Natales, Chile, on March 13-17, 2013.  The conference will be preceded by an International Course (March 4-13, 2013) on “Biodiversity and Conservation: Integrating new ecological understanding and ethical foundations,” coordinated by Drs. Juan Armesto and Dr. Ricardo Rozzi.

Post-conference optional field trips will include visits to the Senda Darwin Biological Station (Chiloé Island) to learn about long-term ecological research on forest biodiversity, ecosystem functioning and plant-animal interactions in rural landscapes, and to the Omora Ethnobotanical Park to learn about the field environmental philosophy program, sub-Antarctic ecotourism and biocultural conservation in the Cape Horn Biosphere Reserve.

The course and the conference are co-organized by the Institute of Ecology and Biodiversity (IEB – Chile) and the Universidad de Magallanes (UMAG) in collaboration with the University of North Texas (UNT), the Center for Environmental Philosophy (CEP), and the Group of Environmental Thinking “Augusto Angel Maya” led by Dr. Patricia Noguera at the Department of Human Sciences and the Institute of Environmental Studies (IDEA), Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Campus Manizales.
