How do we get out of our local/national/global ecological mess? Can the history of American environmental activism chart a path forward? The members of this panel have spent years thinking about this question, and their answers may surprise you. One panelist thinks our best option will be to stop saving the planet! Everyone on the panel finds inspiration in stories that largely have been neglected in both scholarly and popular commentary about efforts to address environmental problems. Join us for a lively (and hopeful) debate about what we can learn from the past about building a just and sustainable future.
