Epilogue – Ecological Literacy – excerpt from page 297

Reconnecting with the web of life means building and nurturing sustainable communities in which we can satisfy our needs and aspirations without diminishing the chances of further generations. For this task we can learn valuable lessons from the study of ecosystems, which are sustainable communities of plants, animals and microorganisms. To understand these lessons, we need to learn the basic principles of ecology. We need to become, as it were, ecologically literate. Being ecologically literate, or “ecoliterate,” means understanding the principles of organization of ecological communities (ecosystems) and using those principles creating sustainable human communities. We need to revitalize our communities – including our educational communities, business communities, and political communities – so that the principles of ecology become manifest in them as principles of education, management, and politics.

The problems we have now in communities and societies are going to be resolved only when we are brought together by a common sense that each of us is a visionary.  Each of us must come to the realization that we can function and live at the level of vision rather than following some great leader's vision.  Instead of looking for a great leader, we are in an era where each of us needs to find the great leader in ourselves.
