Environment and the World is a group weblog that was created by two recent college graduates. After having immersed ourselves in the (student) environmental movement for several years, and after having pursued environmental area studies to various ends we now hope to continue the discussion. Recognizing that “the environment” is a complex, multifaceted term with a significance that trascends disciplinary and ideological boundaries, we are interested in discussing “environmental topics” often in a broader social, political, economic, and cultural context.
The purpose of this blog is to share information, to educate each other, and mostly to develop a dialogue. We encourage anyone interested to contribute to this blog by commenting on posts in order to raise questions, share information, and offer different perspectives. We will be happy to invite people who frequent the blog to post threads, as well.
