Teaching Ecological Literacy


As societies search for ways to become more sustainable, Fritjof Capra suggests incorporating the same principles on which nature’s ecosystems operate. In his essay, “Speaking Nature’s Language: Principles for Sustainability” from the book Ecological Literacy, he leaves a blueprint for building a more resilient world on the foundation of natural concepts, such as interdependence and diversity.

Green ideas and writings of Dr. Capra and Charlene Spretnak were keys to the start up of the Green Party: GREEN POLITICS: The Global Promise by Charlene Spretnak and Fritjof Capra

Green Values / "It's All Connected" / Relational Reality by Charlene Spretnak


From the Bioneers / If anyone has learned to speak nature’s language, it is Fritjof Capra. A founding director of the Center for Ecoliteracy and currently chair of its board, he has distinguished himself over the past forty years as a scientist, systems theorist, and explorer of the philosophical and social ramifications of contemporary science.

Introducing Dr. Capra to an overflow audience at a Bioneers Conference plenary, Kenny Ausubel speaks of physics, connectivity, and eco-undertanding:

“One of Fritjof Capra’s greatest gifts is his ability to digest enormous amounts of information from highly complex, wide-ranging fields of inquiry. Not only does he explain them elegantly and clearly, but he distills their essence and sees their implications. Because he’s a credentialed scientist who did his time with particle accelerators all over Europe and the United States, Fritjof never overstates his case or lapses into wishful thinking.”

After receiving his Ph.D. in theoretical physics from the University of Vienna in 1966, Capra did research in particle physics at the University of Paris, the University of California at Santa Cruz, the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, Imperial College of the University of London, and the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory at the University of California. He also taught at UC Santa Cruz, UC Berkeley, and San Francisco State University.

He is the author of five international bestsellers: The Tao of Physics (1975), The Turning Point (1982), Uncommon Wisdom (1988), The Web of Life (1996), and The Hidden Connections (2002). He coauthored Green Politics (1984), Belonging to the Universe (1991), and EcoManagement (1993), and coedited Steering Business Toward Sustainability (1995).

Science and scientific thinking are critically important these days when science and expertise are too often being set aside.

The Commons", the protection and preservation of our home planet, must not be discounted and set aside." -- SJS / GreenPolicy360 Siterunner

Let's take a moment from our active lives and, as planet citizens, look back 'at the roots' of environmental, ecological studies. The classics, whole earth, the big picture, a vision of our Earth as our common home:

"This is a critical moment in the Earth’s history. Though reasonable people may debate the causes and disagree about what is to be done, there is little doubt that humanity faces significant, global environmental problems affecting the quality and sustainability of human, and non-human, life on this planet. At such an historical moment, Lawrence and other institutions of higher education have an obligation to respond."

American Environmental Policy: Beyond Gridlock -- 2013 -- by Christopher McGrory Klyza, Christopher David J. Sousa


The "golden era" of American environmental lawmaking in the 1960s and 1970s saw twenty-two pieces of major environmental legislation (including the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, and the Endangered Species Act) passed by bipartisan majorities in Congress and signed into law by presidents of both parties. But since then partisanship, the dramatic movement of Republicans to the right, and political brinksmanship have led to legislative gridlock on environmental issues. In this book, Christopher Klyza and David Sousa argue that the longstanding legislative stalemate at the national level has forced environmental policymaking onto other pathways.
