Within this course we will be inquiring our role as active ecologists, engaged in and as nature in our research and livelihoods. Exploring the meaning, ethics and motivation embedded in our work of understanding natural systems. How can we develop tools, and approaches for active participation within the natural world.
Grounded in ancient and modern state-of-the-art Nature-based practices and worldviews, we'll be looking for inspiration by looking at practical examples of engagement in ecological studies, that brings us closer to designing solutions to the current eco-social challenges we're facing as Humanity: climate change, biodiversity Loss, soil degradation, deforestation, fires, etc...
The course will be a well balanced distribution between conceptual work, practical experiential exercises, group co-designing in teams and outdoor activities.
The Modules will include:
- Rethinking our ecological traditions
- Nature-based ethics
- Principles of engaged ecology
- Practices for engaged ecologists
-Examples of eco-engagement
- Designing engaged ecological action
