Workshop to explore the ethics of ecologyWritten by Admin
Training for leaders and activists in the conservation movement will explore the deeper issues of ethics, values and the root causes of ecological issues facing society from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Sept. 21 and Sept. 28 in Sylva.
“The training aims to empower you to create similar dialogs in your towns and workplaces, getting people talking about environmental problems in deeper, more meaningful ways,” according to Rob Hawk, director of the N.C. Cooperative Extension Service in Jackson and Swain counties.
The “Leopold Land Ethics” Program is rooted in noted conservationist’s Aldo Leopold’s own method of engaging his family and students in developing a personal land ethic — observing the natural world through scientific inquiry, participating in purposeful work on the land and reflecting on their experiences.
