EcoRes Forum ============================= Exploring the Ethical, Political and Socio-Cultural Aspects of Climate Change Read our mission... About EcoRes Forum Based on the principles of social equity, environmental justice and ecocentrism, the EcoRes Forum is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to the free exchange of knowledge and ideas concerning social and environmental issues related to climate change via a series of online e-conferences and virtual discussion boards. Our dialogue series launched in April 2007 with a two-week debate about whether a societal paradigm shift to ecocentrism* might speed the global climate movement. More than 700 participants from 80+ countries took part in the discussion, which culminated later that year in the Forum's Call for Action: Achieving Global Climate Justice in the 21st Century. The second dialogue in this free series took place in April 2008. Titled Environmental (In)Justice: Sources, Symptoms, and Solutions, this e-conference took a look at some of the underlying causes of environmental and climate injustices around the world, with participants sharing examples and suggestions on how best to resolve and redress these issues. By hosting this transdisciplinary series, the Forum team aims to build synergistic bridges among activists and academics, scientists and social critics, researchers, journalists, community leaders, and concerned citizens in order to increase our shared understanding and thereby to empower joint efforts on climate change issues.
