Leadership for an Endangered Planet
School of Consciousness and Transformation EWP 6690 1.00
The twenty-first century has brought technological innovation and material comfort to many people in the developed world. However, our material success has also brought with it increasing devastation of the natural world, growing social injustice and intensifying climate change. This course explores assumptions and root causes of these interrelated planetary crises and examines what is possible now in this time of the Great Turning. The course will address three central questions: 1) Where are we now? 2) How did we get here? 2) How do we find the way forward to a more sustainable future for both the human and the more-than-human world? The class will emphasize practical steps that we as individuals and members of the collective can take to help redirect ourselves, our communities and society at large into more conscious and sustainable choices.
