2 p.m. – 3 p.m
Facilitated by Brett D. Hartman
Where the land is hurting, the people are hurting – healing the land and healing the people are one and the same. I will present preliminary results from my dissertation research, including a socio-ecological model of land restoration in developing nations and empirical results from a project in gully rehabilitation, wetland restoration and community development in the Bolivian Andes. These results will then be related back to quotes from the Bahá’í writings in a group discussion format to come to an understanding of the very clear guidance the scriptures have given us on how to best restore our environment.
