“Philosophers for Future” – Focusing Philosophical Work on Climate Change


There is now a call for philosophers to join with others who have been protesting the lack of action on climate change.

Called Philosophers for Future, it is inspired by the #FridaysForFuture movement and those who’ve joined it (such as Scientists For Future).

John Trice, “World 23”

Philosophers for Future is currently collecting signatures on a statement that discusses various ways philosophers may contribute to addressing climate change. It asks signatories to “make every effort to bring the climate crisis into our curricula, seminar rooms and lecture halls, and to support philosophical work on climate-related topics.”

The initiative was started by Martin Kusch (Vienna).

You can read and sign the statement here.
