The Transition Town Movement: Earth Literacy Education in Practice
Master of Arts in Earth Literacy
The Earth Literacy Program provides a foundation of knowledge enabling students to perceive the universe as a network of relationships and the capacity to critically assess those relationships. This encourages reflection on the human relationship, individually and as a species. The Transition Movement provides an example of relating to the earth and local community in a way that is reverent toward all life. The Transition Town Movement counters the domination aspect of our culture because it mimics the natural processes of life. In fact, creativity, emergence, equality, diversity, and networking of living systems are the values of this movement. Domination and hierarchy are viewed as unhelpful and part of the problem.
