The PLANET Project

We live in times of serious and daunting social, economic, and political challenges, in no small part because of unprecedented, human-induced shifts in natural systems. Response to these challenges requires social and political innovations.

The PLANET Project leverages resources at the Kenan Institute for Ethics and the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions at Duke University to explore the opportunities environmental law and policy create as forums for innovation.

The project looks to create spaces in which ethical and normative matters—which are ultimately always matters of meaning—can surface and become an intentional part of decision making in the arena of environmental policy.
