CREATING SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES (CSC)

CSC is a series of short essays on topics related to creating sustainable communities.  What is an ‘ecological identity’? Why should we develop and nurture this dimension of our selfhood? and how? Should and how can indebtedness between nations be considered in environmental terms? Does globalization do more harm than good? Should it be encouraged? These are some of the issues considered in the essays.
