Cultural values and responses are largely missing from Irish public discourse about the ecological emergency.
This podcast series shares in-depth conversations between cultural academics, creative practitioners and activists living in Ireland who are exploring values and practices needed to foster an ecological era.
Earth Writings Podcasts aim to cultivate awareness in the Irish cultural sector and beyond, of culture’s critical role alongside science to support urgent societal change toward a more just, beautiful and sustainable future for all.
