Critical-e promotes the understanding and articulation of ecological thought and possibility through public engagement in research.

In addition to regular updates from around the world and from our partners, it is the home of the peer reviewed academic journal Vibrant Ecologies, and where you can find information on the research initiative Finding Ecologies.

The heat of the global climate emergency touches each of us,  and asks for a personal reckoning with new ecologies – environmental; technological; cultural and artistic; human and animal; and so finding an ecological sensibility by which we all might live and thrive, with or without anxiety., is pressing.
