Sustainability of self, community and environment
The term 'sustainability' emerged in the 1970's as a key concept for environmental and social planning processes. In the 1980's the United Nations 'World Commission on Environment and Development' (WCED) published a report defining sustainable development as "development that meets the needs of current generations without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs" (WCED 1987)
Anthropocentric to ecocentric
Deb desires to broaden and challenge this concept from an anthropocentric viewpoint to ecocentric which considers all life, without humans being the noted superior species. She looks at the systems, cycles and rhythms supporting all life; within ourselves, community and our environment.
Greensong aims to support and inspire individuals and groups by offering simple, enriching and empowering practices and strategies that can be easily integrated in regular daily life. The human species is the only species capable on our planet to use our whole body to take actions to make changes necessary to create a regenerative culture and attempt to mitigate the damage of the climate and ecological crisis.
Greensong is the manifestation of a longing and 'calling' to respond to the creative and regenerative actions. Greensong becomes more integrated with greater nature-reconnecting, 'listening' to the whispers by tuning in with our senses, not just our ears hearing. The messages become clearer... and clearer...
Collaborations with other persons, organizations and projects are chosen for their integrity, ethics and commitment to equitable, long-term sustainability and living in a peaceful world.
All workshop prices vary. Our lives and experiences are enriched by the diversity of participants. Everyone is welcome regardless of their financial situation, therefore we offer a tiered pricing structure. Please see the specific event or contact for more info about donations, gift economy/skill share options. Workshop fees and donations fund Greensong projects and the following organisations:
...co-creating regenerative moments with Nature as part of Nature...
SUSTAINABILITY OF SELF
Applied Ecopsychology and eco-art methods offer relaxation, healing and self-discovery through a variety of nature + mindfulness opportunities.
Participating in this kind of work demonstrates a commitment to tuning in to our own healing, experiences and opportunities.
SUSTAINABILITY OF COMMUNITY
Offering real-life skills and meaningful moments thorough practical nature-connecting activities and experiences.
This work is to strengthen the communities we are part of, build resilience and respectful relationships allowing for a regenerative culture to emerge.
SUSTAINABILITY OF ENVIRONMENT
We are nourished by creating holistic ecosystems surrounding us that nurture ourselves and our natural world.
As we are not separate from our environment, there are many ways to tune in to the reciprocal relationships surrounding us and take actions that support life to thrive.
