Other Publications

Toward a New Consciousness: Values to Sustain Human and Natural Communities (2007), a publication of Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Education.  At its deepest level, if we are to address the linked environmental, social, and even spiritual crises, we must address the wellsprings of human caring, motivation, and social identity. To explore these themes, the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies convened an esteemed group of leaders representing diverse disciplines, including the natural sciences, social sciences, philosophy, communications, education, religion, ethics, public policy, business, philanthropy, history, the creative arts, and the humanities, and synthesized their insights and recommendations into this volume.
