Home Place Series
Exploring Human Ecology with J. Stan Rowe
Changing our present exploitative relationship with Earth to one of partnership.
PARTNERSHIP, the third program in the "Home Place" series, explores the challenges faced by industrial societies as they shift from the present damaging, exploitative relationship with earth ecosystems towards a more sustainable partnership. The program shows how ancient cultures vanished because they lived beyond their ecological means, and shows clearly that present agricultural, forestry and fishing practices have us on the same course. Modern developments in ecologically-based forestry illustrate the kind of partnership which is possible, if ecosystem needs are respected.
