DIS students and their faculty were recently featured in the local paper called Hvidovre Avis during their Environmental Philosophy course’s Field Study to Køge Bay Strandpark. While on the trip, they toured artificial coastal islands made of dredged sand and dune plants and visited the Hvidovre windmill cooperative. They also met with former MP and Copenhagen mayor Per Kaalund, who supervised the Køge Bay Strandpark project, and spoke to retired politician Erik Frølund-Thomson, who chairs the Hvidovre windmill cooperative.
The Environmental Philosophy course looks at sustainability through the Scandinavian and philosophical perspectives. It asks students to identify the major ideologies at play in environmental policy debates, as well as reflect on their own beliefs on significant environmental policy questions. In addition to the Field Study in Hvidovre, the course also visits a sustainable collective called Svanholm Gods.
