ID Number: 275
Title: Integral Learning for Environmental Justice and Sustainability
Lead Author: Walsh, Elizabeth A
Abstract: A fundamental challenge of the social, behavioral, and economic sciences is to develop theories, research methods, and social technologies that unleash the creative potential of humanity to address our global environmental, social, and economic crises. We, as human beings, must learn to listen and relate more powerfully, creatively, and compassionately with each other and the ecosystems of which we are an integral part. In sum we must cultivate ecological citizenship, inside and outside the academy. The SBE sciences must help lead the way, but we must change the way we do business. For far too long, scientific, generalized knowledge and technical knowledge have come to dominate our modern societys way of understanding the world, to the exclusion of other ways of knowing and relating that are also absolutely vital to our survival as a global civilization. Recent research suggests the unique and critical value of the social sciences for a sustainable future, and the imperative for social scientists to change the way we do business.
