We face some very serious challenges in the immediate future as our ecological systems (our life systems) are continually being degraded. In fact, if we stop to reflect we will realize the crisis is already among us. The main source of energy that people on this planet are living on, is running out. Water is being contaminated and overused. Air is being polluted and the atmosphere is the dumping ground for increased amounts of carbon and radioactive materials. Soil is under severe stress and life species are being eliminated. Our economic systems have borrowed from the future by overextending our use of these ecological systems. The principle on that mortgage is now due.
This information can be overwelming for most people. There are solutions but they are complex and we will need to rethink the manner in which we live on this planet to achieve them. However there is a great deal of misinformation, myth, ignorance and denial about ecological systems. The most powerful solution to our problems and the best source of hope and confidence lies in the knowledge that all citizens should possess. Our starting point is in assisting citizens to become ecologically literate by (a) understanding how global ecological systems work and (b) by understanding that we are "environment" and that "environment" is not something separate from us.
Ecological consciousness hopefully will lead to changed individuals and family behaviors. Our ultimate goal is to create an ecologically / economically sustainable city, region, province and world
Knowledge acquired through a respectful and enjoyable atomsphere of co-learning can build confidence and hope in the future. It allows the individual to participate in planning for the future on an equal footing. This is our starting point.
