A Fresh Approach to conservation
People need healthy and abundant natural resources to provide economic options and to nourish their lives with beautiful places and experiences. Although the connections are not always obvious, humans depend on healthy nature.
Climate change and unsustainable resource management practices are undermining those resources, in New Mexico where Seventh Generation Institute is based, around the West, and far beyond to almost every corner of the earth.
Conservation, restoration, and responsible use are not pie-in-the-sky. If done well and applied wisely, they can work.
But old school conservation methods won't get the job done. If old school worked, we wouldn't be still arguing over the same resource management issues that first came up in the 1970s.
New ideas. New tools. New information. New partners.
We're new school.
