Imagining ecologically sound and sustainable futures
What is an ecologically ideal place? Is there such a thing as a green world with a perfect balance between humans and the environment? To answer these questions, the EU-funded ECOFUTURE project will carry out an interdisciplinary ecocritical analysis to establish where ecotopian depictions of the future exist in British and North American climate change discourse. It will find out why they appear where they do, and what factors contribute to the widespread absence of ecotopian imagery and thought within depictions of humanity’s future amidst a climate in crisis. The findings will shed light on ideas of ecotopia and their impact, benefitting research and policies addressing the environmental concerns of today.
