The Science of Sustainable Ecology – One Community Weekly Progress Update #240

The Science of Sustainable Ecology – One Community Weekly Progress Update #240

If creating a sustainable planet is the goal, it is essential to understand the science of sustainable ecology from a perspective focused on people’s place within it. This is essential if humanity is to step into the role of conscientious stewards and change the unsustainable course we are currently on. We are capable of sustainable approaches to food, energy, housing, education, economic design, social architecture and so much more. One Community thinks now is the time and open source and free-shared approaches to all these areas is the path.
