Environment

Our generation is writing a new story about what it means to be in relationship with nature and the natural environment. Previous cultural beliefs viewed nature as force which humans should harness and control for our own good. There was also the belief that nature was separate from us, and that there is an unlimited amount of nature to exploit, with no consequences. This belief has brought us to the brink of a unimaginably disastrous environmental crises. Many interlinked issues, such as Climate Change, Deforestation, Mass Extinction, Mountaintop Removal, Oil Spills, drought, and many others, represent the relationship society has had with nature for the past several hundred years. We now know enough is enough, and that it is time to forge a much more harmonious and sustainable relationship to the natural environment.
