Societies need to adjust to environmental change and to new living conditions in the age of climate change and environmental degradation. Instead of mourning the loss of traditional life-styles, this workshop explores forward-looking proposals to redefine the interface of society and nature. The concept of “Greentopia” serves as an umbrella term for innovative proposals that provide ideas and concepts for an eco-friendly social life with nature. The workshop brings together philosophers, social scientists and natural scientists in order to explore Greentopia. It invites visionary proposals, but also distinct ideas, useful concepts and suggestions for helpful institutional innovation. The workshop is part of the project “New Directions in Plant Ethics,” however it is not restricted to proposals in the context of plant ethics.


We intend to open our perspectives for the future, inspiring new cooperation possibilities across borders and connecting researchers in budding networks -- encouraging positive development for a better tomorrow.


We invite submissions for a 30-minute presentation, followed by a 10-minute discussion.

Please prepare a long abstract (1200 words, Times new roman, 12pts, double spacing)and send it as an attachment in MS word or PDF to: greentopia2019@philosophie.univie.ac.at


As we care for our planet as well as its inhabitants, we are explicitly open for Skype-presentations. Please let us know if you plan to participate via Skype.
