This project is a curriculum intended for use in three to five day residential situations such as those provided by conference centers. The objectives of the curriculum are to encourage participants to evaluate the human portion of the human-earth relationship, to discover ways to change human views and behavior to make this relationship equitable and sustainable, and to develop ways to communicate this new knowledge to members of the participants’ home communities. A variety of learning modalities will be engaged including movement, meditation, discussion, art, music and writing. A workbook called “The Human Being’s Guide to Living Lightly on the Planet” will be provided for participants. This curriculum is a living document and expected to change as is it implemented over time. Following is the current draft.
