(1969 - Current)
During the later years of the 1960’s, teaching teams from the Ecumenical Institute (EI) in Chicago began offering seminars in North Carolina dedicated to the commitment that every human being has the capacity to responsibly shape their personal future and the destiny of the communities of which they are a part. The task of expanding on the diverse aspects of this commitment and of developing the practical ways to embody this possibility in everyday situations has been the work of countless individuals and numerous organizations for 50 years. Emerging Ecology's Historical Background documentation project, Care Across the Carolinas, will give substance to this story.
An initial overview of the past 50 years entitled "Short Versions of Long Threads" provides an introduction to the key individuals whose lives have intertwined to shape current activities in the Carolinas.
Navigating Corners (Updated: March 4, 2020), a research study of organizational change based on the international experiences of the Institute of Cultural Affairs using analogies from the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race in a Universe-referent context was prepared by F. Nelson Stover. This sets some of the larger context in which Emerging Ecology functions in the 21st Century.
