We are delighted to welcome Lewis Williams to our library in Govan for a lunchtime roundtable and sharing around the themes of radical human ecology, food, resilience and indigeneity.

This event will be of particular interest to practitioners with an interest in community development, intergenerational practice, land reform, food security, and indigenous approaches to human ecology.

Lewis Williams will be familiar to the CHE network as co-editor, along with Rose Roberts and CHE director Alastair McIntosh, of the volume “Radical Human Ecology: Intercultural and Indigenous Approaches” (Routledge 2012) which contained several chapters authored by CHE graduates and fellows, and made a major contribution to the literature on the distinctive transdisciplinary ‘Scottish school of human ecology’ that CHE pioneered.

A free PDF of the foreword, afterword (which Lewis co-wrote), and Alastair McIntosh’s contributions to the book, the chapters “Teaching Radical Ecology in the Academy” and “The Challenge of Radical Human Ecology” are available at this link: Radical Human Ecology

Dr Williams is also founder of the Alliance for Intergenerational Resilience (AIR), which is working with seven hubs across four countries (including Scotland) with the aim of strengthening intergenerational and interspecies connections through the revitalization of Indigenous knowledge.

Light refreshments will be available. We look forward to seeing you there.
