The environment is our physical surroundings. This includes vegetation and wildlife but also unseen natural features like the life in the soil, the quality of the air…
Then there are manmade features like housing, transport, industry. In some happy communities these co-exist well with the natural environment. Often, they do not. And the process of globalisation is accelerating the destruction of our life-sustaining ‘common wealth’in return for economic gain for the few.
The challenge for communities is to build self-empowerment and resilience – because nature is vulnerable but also resilient! Access the latest knowledge and recover indigineous knowledge. Identify and address sources of pollution. Develop comunity-building activities which help restore nature, reconnect us with nature… and our own real nature.
Networklearning takes action locally
- Category: Our environment
To translate words into deeds and be the change we want to see, Networklearning has started its own environmental project. It is located almost literally in our back-yard – on unused land bordering the foundation’s registered address in Schoorl, North Holland. So we are able to keep a good eye on developments!
