Exploring the Roots of our Current Challenges with Soren Bondrup-Nielsen

Shared Ground

05-07-2022 • 59 minutos

Join me for a talk with Soren Bondrup-Nielsen about the effects of a mechanistic worldview. This wide-ranging conversation includes topics of teaching conservation in a holistic way, his involvement in the court case to protect species-at-risk in Nova Scotia, the effect current forestry has on the the composition of our forests, and how ultimately, the economic system is at the root of many of our current world challenges. As he says, “our economic system is something WE created. We can change it.”

He also offers some thoughts on the internet, critical thinking, how technology can interfere with feedback loops, and the danger of "experts".

Soren grew up in the country in both Denmark and Canada and is passionate about the outdoors and how we humans relate to nature.

For twenty-seven years, Soren was a professor in Biology at Acadia University where he taught ecology and conservation biology. He is president of the Blomidon Naturalists Society.
