Annual Spiritual Ecology Lecture: Eternity in a Second – The Ethics of Radical Ecological Democracy

We are delighted to invite you to the Annual Spiritual Ecology Lecture, where we will explore the profound theme of “Eternity in a Second: The Ethics of Radical Ecological Democracy.”

Event Details:

  • Date: Saturday, 20th January 2024
  • Time: 06:00 PM – 08:00 PM (IST)
  • Venue: Lecture Hall – 1, Annexe, India International Centre, New Delhi

This event will be live streamed on Tibet House Youtube channel @TibetHouseDelhi1965

Speaker: Mr. Ashish Kothari is a founder-member of Kalpavriksh, and active in various people’s movements. He taught at the Indian Institute of Public Administration, coordinated India’s Biodiversity Strategy & Action Plan, and served on Greenpeace Boards. He is a judge on the International Tribunal on Rights of Nature, and helps coordinate Vikalp Sangam and Global Tapestry of Alternatives. He has co-authored/edited ‘Churning the Earth’, ‘Alternative Futures’, and ‘Pluriverse: A Post-Development Dictionary’.

Abstract: In a world ridden with crises, humanity’s biggest challenge is to find pathways of justice, peace and equality. This is not only about relations amongst humans, but also between humans and the rest of nature. We need to re-establish co-existence with other species, recognising our essential interconnectivity with the Earth. We need to find ways of meeting human needs and aspirations that respect the dignity and agency of all people, and the right of other species to thrive. There are actually thousands of initiatives doing precisely this, providing signs of hope in the midst of the darkness engulfing us. There is a pluriverse of alternatives towards a radical ecological democracy, with a foundation of common ethics and principles. The presentation will focus on this pluriverse, placing it in the context of the ecological, socio-cultural, political and economic crises that the world faces.

This lecture promises to be a thought-provoking exploration of the ethical dimensions of radical ecological democracy, inviting us to contemplate the vastness of eternity encapsulated in a fleeting moment.

We look forward to your presence at this intellectually stimulating and spiritually enriching event. Feel free to extend this invitation to others who share an interest in the intersection of spirituality, ecology, and democracy.
