Enhancing Life: The Meanings Of Sustainability

When people think of sustainability, they often associate it with the fight against climate change. But as a concept, sustainability runs deeper. 

Maria Antonaccio, a religion professor at Bucknell University, has been researching alternate theories of sustainability, and how they spill into modern discourse around climate change, with the University of Chicago’s Enhancing Life ProjectShe joins Worldview to discuss her ideas.

Gleacher's talk on the subject at the project’s capstone conference is on August 6 at the Gleacher Center downtown.
