Frequently, Emerging Ecology hosts weekend outings to places where the human and natural worlds in ways that have special significance in the long sweep of universal time. In October 2021, a group will be going to the New River Gorge National Park in WV. The New River is actually an old river that was flowing before the Appalachian Mountains were formed.
During the 2015 and 2016, Emerging Ecology conducted an Action Research Project focused on discerning the key elements for Living Responsibly in the 21st Century. These events are based on the research and discussion from the 13 Worldview Salons held during 2015 and 2016.
We believe that human interactions with the world around us play a significant role in shaping our lives. A central part of our work is to explore individual and collective worldview - the perspectives that influence our thoughts, the assumptions that guide our behavior, and the institutions we navigate together. Through this exploration we uncover a unique worldview, a way of being in the world as active participants. Our contextual programming guides groups towards actionable insights regarding their individual goals as well as our collective future as humans playing an active part in shaping the future of the Planet.
Action Research Think Tanks will be held between September 2017 and March 2018.
Reimagining Our Place on the Planet:In July, 2017, we held a Story Creation weekend in the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest. In 2018, the Uwharrie Rocks outing to the Uwharrie Mountains and National Forest created songs and poems of the human place on the Planet.
