Leadership for the Ecozoic is a university network working towards a vision of the future founded on mutually enhancing relationships between human societies and the planetary community of life through the lens of socio-ecological justice.
The term “Ecozoic” originates from cultural historian Thomas Berry. Drawing from Berry’s work, L4E defines the Ecozoic as an emerging vision for human habitation of Earth which allows and enables the flourishing of the whole community of life. L4E works to further this emerging vision through collaborative scholarship, learning and experimentation.
* “Anthropocene to the Ecozoic” signals our focus on creating a path towards a truly flourishing human-Earth relationship – we aspire to move FROM the Anthropocene TO the Ecozoic.
