Perspectives and stories in a world of facts and figures?
Exploring the potential of anthropology in tackling environmental issues
EASA’s Environment and Anthropology Network inaugural meeting
12-13 December 2019, Cologne, Germany
This workshop provided the opportunity to get to know each other’s work, develop the purposes and strategies of the network, and plan possible collaborations.
As we are convinced that environmental anthropology can contribute to alternative and more just futures, we place the exploration of possible ways to do so at the heart of our first meeting. We aim to explore the potential for anthropologists, and anthropological insights, in contributing to public debates and solution attempts for current environmental issues. We will share diverse experiences of linking up with policy and practice. We will exchange some of the methods that have proved useful to this end. And we will critically discuss the potential benefits and harms that providing our knowledge in these circles may cause.
