Difficult times require bold visions.
The difficulties that are evident in the decline of individual and social health, the precarious nature of the economy, social justice and the degrading of the environment all demand fundamental changes in the values of modern culture. The Human Ecology Project is based on the firm belief that human society is capable of creating new habits of body and mind, thought and action that can dramatically improve the quality of life on the planet for future generations and ourselves.
