Cultural Pluralism and Biodiversity. Rethinking Sustainable Development

In this podcast series we explore different approaches to questions of pluralism and sustainable development. In this video the different parts of the podcast will be briefly introduced by the speakers.


AudioPart 1: Dr. Caroline Suransky, director Kosmopolis Institute, on the Pluralism Knowledge Program, the relation between pluralism and sustainable development, a seminar we held in Uganda, concerning the Mountains of the Moon.


AudioPart 2: Prof.dr. Henk Manschot, senior fellow Kosmopolis Institute, on the work of French philosopher Bruno Latour, which proves to be very relevant for the discussion on pluralism and sustainable development.


AudioPart 3: Prof.dr. Guido Ruivenkamp, University for Humanistic Studies & Wageningen University, on biotechnology and agriculture in a culturally and biologically diverse world.
