Breakthrough Dialogue 2021: Ecomodern Justice

The Breakthrough Institute
Event date
Event time
Multi-day event, 4-6 August 2021

US ecomodernist think-tank The Breakthrough Institute will hold its 2021 Breakthrough Dialogue, Ecomodern Justice, on 4-6 August 2021 in person and virtually. This is a multi-day event with several speakers and sessions. The event will consider notions of social justice in the context of ecomodernism. Global modernity was both built upon histories of conquest and oppression and gave birth to traditions of liberal universalism, political enfranchisement, and cosmopolitan empathy upon which contemporary demands for justice and equity rest.
