The primary goal of the Ecological Citizen’s Project is to develop ecological citizens.
Becoming an Ecological Citizen. An ecological citizen possesses a greater sense of ecological-consciousness, recognizing the ways we are inextricably connected to each other and the world around us. An ecological citizen embraces an active, expansive citizenship, one which includes changing private behaviors to promote the public good and engaging in collective action to push for systemic change.
Facing our Sustainability Challenges. We live in a culture of atomization, with things presented and organized as separate from each other without wider context. Whether it is the food we eat or products we buy, how we study social problems and determine solutions, or how individual actions are connected to community outcomes, we are failing to see the forest for the trees. To address growing economic insecurity, environmental destruction, unhealthy communities and a weakening democracy, we must develop a movement of ecological citizens.
We need to see the world ecologically, recognizing the interconnections between the problems we face and acting to address root causes collectively.
Join us and become an ecological citizen.
