Leading environmental educator and theorist Dr. Mitchell Thomashow will speak on “Understanding Environmental Change: The Need for an Ecological and Existential View” at Saint Joseph’s College on Apr. 18 at 7 p.m. in Alfond Hall.

Thomashow – an innovative thinker who becomes president of Unity College in July – heads the Antioch New England environmental studies department in Keene, New Hampshire.

Thomashow has developed reflective, interdisciplinary instruction for environmental studies programs. His most recent book, Bringing the Biosphere Home, is about learning how to perceive world-wide environmental change. The book shows that people can broaden their spatial and temporal view to encompass the entire biosphere through a blend of local natural history observations, global change science, the use of imagination and memory and spiritual contemplation.
