Land Ethics and Social Justice

20年来,Leopold Week要求公民反思他们与自然世界的关系。利奥波德的话——美丽而雄辩——吸引了世界各地的参与,并因为一个尚未得到回应的道德呼吁而持久,这个道德呼吁维系了自然世界,进而也维系了我们。


Here at the Aldo Leopold Foundation we use Leopold Week togrow our thinking community and build an ethic of care for all.From the very first event in 2000, Leopold Week has grown to global participation of thousands through community readings, film screenings, outdoor activities, and this year, virtual presentations. But unlike years past, the social injustices unfolding in our communities have challenged us to converge the historically parallel, but separate conservation and social justice movements.

As part of our own internal work at the Aldo Leopold Foundation we are committed to engaging, listening to, and learning from friends and colleagues. We are understanding what we know and don’t know about how Aldo Leopold himself thought about diversity and justice. We see the energy and attention that Leopold Week generates as an opportunity to introduce and amplify many of these voices and perspectives within our “thinking community.”
