“Once we—collectively—have an integrated sense of aesthetics, we can begin to discern what is beautiful and what is broken about a place, and, from there, I believe we can begin to form an objective—or near-objective—foundation for ethical discernment.Answers emerge from the community of life itself, filtered through human experience and consciousness.” – DAVID GEORGE HASKELL

David George Haskell is joined by broadcaster and author Indira Naidoo for a conversation on conservation, interconnection and what trees – serving as exemplars and guides – can teach us about living responsibly within life’s community.
