Abstract

It's time to build bridges - the ecological imperatives of our times demand it. They require us to listen well, especially across our differences, particularly to the voices that echo what many of us have forgotten - our own indigeneity; our inherent capacity to be deeply, empathically resonant with the earth and life itself. Then and only then can we direct this knowing, this re-knowing
of deep interconnectedness into our actions for ecological well-being. This is not, however, an individual pursuit. No nation, no species, no peoples can act alone. This is a collective project­ the recursive nature of our global ecological reality is one that challenges us as individuals, and as cultural communities, to find our unique expressions of the common good.
