Mattingly’s ECOTOPIAN LIBRARY is a toolkit for a more sustainable future. Gathering works concerned with geology, art, ecosophy and commons, the library located at CU Boulder’s Art Museum hopes to contribute to social change. >>

“This library stems from a belief that art and Ecotopian thought can cultivate systemic social change. This toolkit combine disciplines of forestry, botany, art, literature, political and social sciences. It focuses on systems and “Commons” studies, proposals for eco-utopias, poetry, agroforestry plans, almanacs for assisted plant migration with changing climates, and an Ecosophical Manifesto intended to integrate an ecological ethics into practice. With these resources, your job is to bring imagination into realms of possibility.” (Ecotopian Library) >>
