Contributions


This is a growing collection. If you'd like to contribute an entry please use this blank template and email the finished document to [email protected]. Or you could edit one of the above documents, add a new speech and email it in. The leadership speeches should be short (or extracts) and relate to social justice, sustainability or ecology. Ideally they would be as recent as possible, with the exception of some speeches of historic importance.


This project is lead by Prof Arran Stibbe, convenor of the International Ecolinguistics Association
