Welcome to Biocitizen Banter, a podcast dedicated to environmental philosophy featuring lively discussions between people active in the effort to bring biotic health to our communities and commonwealth.
In this episode Ex. Director Dr. Kurt Heidinger interviews Javiera Malebrán Muñoz who has been teaching Field Environmental Philosophy for the past 5 years at the Omora Ethnobotanical Park in the Cape Horn archipelago in southernmost Chile. She has worked closely with our friends Drs. Ricardo Rozzi and Francisca Massardo and also with LA director Jesse Carmichael and Chile director Vicente Aguirre Diez.
Javi was supposed to come to Western Massachusetts this summer to share her immense cultural and academic background with Our Place students, but COVID-19 cancelled out plans.
This discussion introduces you to her, and her Omora Park friends’, powerful way of imagining a world where we live as “family” with all the creatures we share our biomes with. Hers is a voice of inspiration, urging us all to ACT!
