In this episode, Benjamin Freud, Ph.D. speaks with Helen Kopnina, Ph.D. Researcher in Sustainability and Biodiversity at The Hague University of Applied Science (HHS) and Coordinator of the Sustainable Business program. She conducts research within three main areas: sustainability, environmental education and biological conservation. Helen is the author of over 200 articles and (co)author and (co)editor of 17 books. She recently wrote an article with Haydn Washington on Ecocentrism is the pathway to sustainability. In this episode, we discuss:
- The role of education in helping us take the little and bigger steps toward sustainability,
- How so many experiences in school take from nature but forget to give back,
- How anthropocentrism opens the gateways to sexism, racism, economic injustice… as well as the degradation of the planet.
