About Maria Valenstain

I am an undergraduate Laidlaw Scholar studying Philosophy and Politics at the University of York. I am very interested in exploring the practical contributions that Philosophy could make in our societies. Specifically, my research project investigates the application of the philosophical concept of existentialism in climate policy and how this could bring about positive change. My project is entitled: "Existentialism against climate change: An exploration of the climate change debate and climate policy through thematic analysis in scientific and policy documents: Could the practical contribution of philosophy and specifically existentialism in our societies pave the way for more effective climate policies in the future?"
