ECOLOGICAL LITERACY is the knowledge and understanding of how nature’s systems work, and how all living beings are dependent on and interconnected with each other. Taking its roots from ecology and whole systems thinking, ecological literacy is an awareness-building course that provides necessary information on the principles and processes of natural systems, how they make life on earth possible and how we can live in more harmony and integrity with these systems.
The course is an online course including synchronous sessions, team collaborations and discussions, and life-term access to self-paced asynchronous study materials and sessions.
