The international conference will focus on the overlaps between environmental and political philosophy in order to foster the understanding of and dealing with current global environmental crises. The theme of the conference is based on the assumption that the meaningfulness of political decisions in the Anthropocene era depends on the understanding and acceptance of the Earth as a universal methodological horizon. From this premise it follows that an adequate political or social philosophy should be, first of all, environmental. Since the aim of the conference is to create a space for critical discussion on the possibilities of creating an effective international research platform that could authentically contribute to the reflection of current policies that deepen social and environmental inequality, we welcome contributions that are characterized by originality and relevance to the conference theme.
