Welcome to Better Ancestors, and our weekly video series throughout 2021. This series is dedicated to telling the stories of those amazing people in our world who are trying to be better ancestors to future generations. The planet is experiencing catastrophic environmental disaster, and it is up to us to think long term and take action to ensure a sustainable and healthy future for all of humanity. Using the stories of those already leading the charge in sustainability as inspiration, we should all ask ourselves, what can I do to be a better ancestor?
In Episode 3 Better Ancestors continues the story of The Eco School, a Whanganui based education centre which provides both forest school and permaculture education programs. This week we see education in permaculture teaching people to think holistically and develop long-term thinking with integrated knowledge, skills and experiences. These skills can be used to manage land in sustainable and efficient ways that benefit the environment, and provide a framework for finding interconnection in the world around us. As Nelson Lebo says, “environmental education has no start and no end point.” It is never too late to explore new ways of thinking - to discover how to be a Better Ancestor.
