Expressing Your Life Legacy

Whatever you’re doing …
Wherever you are …
You’re influencing others about what you love to learn.
Just as they are doing the same for you!
Who is influencing you?

Your Life Legacy and Earth
You spent your First Fifty on Earth contributing as you have.
As you enter your Next Fifty how will you express your ecological literacy?
Ecological literacy (also referred to as ecoliteracy) is the ability to understand the natural that make life on earth possible. To be ecoliterate means understanding the principles of organization of ecological communities (i.e. ecosystems) and using those principles for creating sustainable human communities.
The term was coined by American educator David W. Orr and physicist Fritjof Capra in the 1990s – thereby a new value entered education; the “well-being of the earth.” An ecologically literate society would be a sustainable society which did not destroy the natural environment on which they depend.

Combining Your Life Legacy with Eco-Literacy
How you interact with others, at home, at work, within your community and the world affects the Earth and its ecosystems.
We eat, drink and breathe the outcome of our ecological efforts. Are you hungry? Are you thirsty? Can you breathe? There are people in the world that would answer “no.” It’s time to extend your wings – flap like the butterfly – and influence the world.
