Landowners urged to restore ancient woodland

Green (Living) Review

The charity is offering advice and support to help people re-establish habitats affected by such planting so the conditions for species that rely on ancient woodland to survive can be strengthened and conserved for future generations.

Alternatives For Simple Living

The Green Changemakers

When we are looking for economic solutions from within a model that is fatally flawed, we will not find lasting, sustainable solutions. A change I find very hopeful is that Mr. Obama is aware of environmental concerns, such as human-generated global climate change, and he actively supports the development of alternative energy production. Whatever we call this shift in our manner of living, it has dramatic implications for the future of our world.

Earth Jurisprudence

The Green Changemakers

Perhaps most importantly, it works at the human level by reminding us that the human and natural worlds can co-exist in a mutually enhancing partnership where we are truly friends of the Earth. Earth Jurisprudence is premised on the understanding that law and governance should protect the wellbeing and integral functioning of the planet so that all components of the Earth Community live in healthy ecosystems that sustain the diversity of the natural world.
