Spotlight on Care: Learning to Live within Limits
Date: Thursday, December 2, 2021
Join Aubrey Streit Krug, Director of Ecosphere Studies at The Land Institute, as she leads a session exploring questions and practices around limits, sufficiency, creative learning, and care. Streit Krug’s recent articles include “Ecospheric Care Work” and “A Social Perennial Vision.”
In an era of accelerating crisis, how might we “come back down to Earth” and collectively embrace limits in ways that help us build more caring, just, and sustainable communities? Our human abilities, knowledge, and lives are limited, yet we have the chance to learn. And as a society, we need to learn to respect and live within the ecological limits of the planet.
