a Radical Recovery
The Ecozoic Policy Project contributes to policy development as related to priorities of L4E and partners, including agroecology and regenerative agriculture, ecological economics and governance, and energy and climate justice.
For these and other emerging priority policy areas, EPP aims to:
inspire new thinking by raising awareness among practitioners, policymakers, and the public regarding an ecological economic paradigm
develop new policy ideas through rigorous analysis of current events and engagement in joint problem-solving with strategic partners
provide training and experience in real-world policy work for students and supporting faculty by employing methods and generating policy outputs that influence the form and direction of policies and their implementation.
Aims of the project
Strategy 1: Enable emergence of a community of practice around the L4E vision.
Strategy 2: Implement participatory place-based research-to-action projects.
Strategy 3: Engage the full L4E community in strategic communications and advocacy.
An Ecozoic era distinguished by mutually enhancing relationships between a plurality of human societies and the planetary communities of life: a world where many worlds flourish
To advance social-ecological justice and pathways to the Ecozoic through policy.
The Ecozoic Policy Project for Social-Ecological Justice works within higher education to inspire new worldviews and transformative policies grounded in social-ecological justice, and to provide training and experience in research-to-policy for a network of leaders and communities enabling a just transition to an Ecozoic era.
