The richness and diversity of contemporary environmental philosophy remains largely absent from the everyday dis- course and decision-making processes of
environmental governance. One reason for this is a sincere difficulty in translating the less tangible and measurable aspects of our environmental relationships into community practices and governing policies. More difficult still, the mechanisms of environmental decision-making have been historically structured
under the influence of latent environmental philosophies that are neither neutral nor equally welcoming to all considerations. The best plans too often produce the same impoverished results.

THIS SYMPOSIUM seeks to envision a richer and more inclusive environmental governance, proposing specific steps for how environmental philosophy can better engage current governance practices.
