CNS5822 Dimensions of Holistic Sustainability

Course Description

Thomas Berry describes the “Great Work before us” as the task of moving modern industrial civilization from its present devastating influence on the Earth to a more benign mode of presence. Sustainability describes this multifaceted shift towards an ecologically sane, socially just, and spiritually fulfilling way of life. Though this shift is “great,” each individual person matters and has a vital role to play. This class explores who and what current environmental crises are inviting you to become. Gathering essential knowledge about sustainability issues forms the basis for collaborative thinking and charting empowered actions. Equally important is an experiential exploration of the shift in consciousness necessary to forge a more ecologically inclusive lifestyle. Sustainability is not only a guiding concept with a set of clear principles; it is also a vibrant, creative, and transformative way to life. Online course.
