We are privileged to be alive at a pivotal moment in
human history when all the settled assumptions of the last two centuries
are up for renegotiation. New economic, political and social paradigms
are evolving right now in response to the converging crises of climate
change, energy insecurity and global economic instability. While
undoubtedly alarming, the realities of our historic moment also present a
window of opportunity. As educators, we can play an important role in preparing
our students to play a constructive part in this regenerative project.
