Thursday, February 18th – Native American Perspectives on Environmental Education and Stewardship Western civilization has tended to view humans as somehow separate and distinct from the natural world, rather than as an integral part whose health and wellbeing is inextricably linked to that of the world around us. Many of today’s great environmental challenges—from climate change to deforestation, from industrial pollution to overfishing—relate back in some way to this view. Looking at environmental stewardship through different cultural lenses can provide a new understanding of these challenges, their impacts on society, and lessons to avoid making the same mistakes in the future.
