Preparing for a Sustainable World
For people who don’t care about the Earth they should just get off; while for the rest of us we need to get on with cleaning it up. First though, we need a core strategy, one that is both simple and universal. But history has warnings about aiming for freedom through money, politics or religion: these only invites endless entrapment and dispossession. Fortunately, there is a peaceable and sufficiently secular approach available for the under-wealthed grassroots.
COURSE SERIES 1: Strategies for Recycling Abundance
Course 1. Changing the Food System
– the looming food-related crises, and how to frame your ‘life’-boat
Course 2. Applied Sustainability
– the processes that stabilise organic life can be applied to more than food and energy cycles
Course 3. Social Citizenship
– how to live with other; beyond democracy, competition and civilisation
The courses in the series can only be taken sequentially.
These courses target Sustainability as a cornerstone principle.
Sustainability as a political and environmental framework has the potential to contain the excesses of wealthy self-interest, to restore the environment to a healthy balance.
They outline an approach to applying sustainability which is best expressed as a social discipline.
