  • The relation of style to content in ecological thought and practice
  • Connections between philosophy and green politics / art practice/ science policy
  • The significance that specific environments have for ecological thought and action
  • The connections between ecological practices (e.g. walking, observing, gardening, direct action etc.) and ecological thought
