The purpose of the Ecology & Regeneration discipline within the NewEarth University School of Socio-Economics & Ecology is simple: To facilitate a planetary ecological renaissance by supporting humankind in rediscovering its connection with nature.
Accordingly we conduct research and development in principles and practices which support all in this transformational journey – to once again walk on the earth with radiant health, justness, and wisdom as conscious co-creators and peaceful bringers of a new and enlightened society. More specifically the NEU fellows, faculty members, staff and affiliates:
- Conduct research and development in principles and practices in sustainable living including: global change ecology, ecosystems functioning and stability, species interactions and biodiversity, Permaculture, Agroforestry, high performance ecologic, bio-dynamic and aquaponic systems for agriculture, mycology, composting techniques, use of beneficial micro-organisms to regenerate the soil’s life and purify the waters, efficient and creative systems to recycle gray waters and all kinds of materials, compost toilets and others
- Provide consultancy and design-planning services for projects and initiatives that seek to protect, preserve, and regenerate the planetary biosphere
- Conduct site impact assessments and analyses of proposed development projects
- Support related initiatives (like the Arks of Fire) which endeavor to increase the presence of Nature and food gardens within the heart and surrounding urban environments, promoting a participation of the neighborhood
- Support and cross-pollinate the reintroduction of appropriate ancestral/shamanic practices and medicines that have been determined to facilitate the expansion of consciousness and our re-alignment with the laws of Nature.
- Continue to support the Arcs of Fire Initiative, a Revolution for Global Regeneration
- Continue development of toolkit resources to support NewEarth Havens and Nationals in applying ecological and restorative practices in their lives and communities
- Develop, conserve, and nurture a Worldwide SeedBank
- Research and develop a scientifically-sound framework for our ecosystem’s restoration, aimed at increasing biological diversity and ecosystem resilience
- Study & report on Homa-Farming’s potential to improve environmental conditions in anthropogenic and natural landscapes mainly aimed at organic, biologic, and biodynamic, food and fiber production (e.g. permaculture, organic farming)
