The Ecological Imagination: A Conversation on Art & Environment with Mitchell Thomashow, Ben Champion, and Paulina Jenney

April 29, 2015

As the sixth in an ongoing series of cross-posts with Terrain.org: A Journal of the Built + Natural Environments, this Proximities features a conversation between Ben Champion, director of sustainability at the University of Arizona, and Mitchell Thomashow, former Unity College president and author of The Nine Elements of a Sustainable Campus. The conversation took place this spring, when Mitch met with the Art & Environment Network at Institute of the Environment. Terrain.org editor Simmons B. Buntin and I asked Paulina Jenney, a UA student in creative writing and environmental studies and a Flinn Scholar, to facilitate the conversation. Excerpts from that conversation follow.
