Unfortunately, ecological literacy has largely failed to spread across disciplinary boundaries in the two decades since the concept was first conceived. To address this problem, this project creates new learning resources and processes for teaching and learning ecologically viable ways of understanding current problems.

Ecological literacy recognizes humankind's embeddedness within the ecological systems and thereby organizes cultural, political, legal and economic systems to prioritise the well-being of the ecological system Design is uniquely positioned to engage in a process of moving from theory to practice and moving between sectors to facilitate transdisciplinary actions and the design of new ways of living Design is a problem solving profession with a wide variety of tools and techniques to addresses complex problems. Philosophy: We have inherited a tradition based on a radical disconnection with the natural world resulting in epistemological error, a crisis of reason and ethical rootlessness. Ecological literacy describes a worldview that supports an ecologically embedded ontalagy, epistemology, rationality and ethic. Transition is a social movement and community design practice based on local responses to climate change and peak oil, i.e. depletion of fossil fuel reserves. Transition has its origins in permaculture which developed strategies for the design of systems for local resilience and energy descent Ecofeminist analysis asserts that historically both women and nature have been oppressed by a logic of domination. Feminism is a fundamental building block for a social transformation of enlarging the community of concern to indlude the wider ecological community as it has emancipative strategies that proven to work. A map based on the AHRC unded PhD research Sustainable Development: Current models of development based on Holistic Science Holistic science dramatically challenges assumptions and Graphic Design aims to strategically change human understanding and behavior through the use of visual communication Graphic design can communi- cate complex webs of interdependence and help audiences perceive relation- ships, context, causality and connections in dynamic systems. Critical Pedagogy is an educational movement that originated from Paulo Freire's educational practices focused on conscientization or critical consciousness. These teaching practices have been integral to the profound change witnessed in sacial movements globally including women's liberation. Ecological Economics is economic theory that recognizes the economic system as embedded within the ecological system and having to function within the carrying capacity of the earth. It describes quantitative growth as no longer delivering prosperity in rich countries. Instead we must aim for qualitative growth. The Visual Communication of Ecological Literacy: Designing. Learning and Emergent Ecological Perception infinite quantitative economic growth within a finite ecological system are entirely unsustainable. Development must reflect growth in nature where physical growth occurs to maturity then levels off towards qualititative growth. methodological approaches of positivist science. Holistic science unites both quantities and qualities in a paradigm shift in science from physics to the life sciences. Holistic science understands the earth as composed of living systems. by Jody Joanna Boehnert School of Architecture and Design The University of Brighton Communications mediate the human-nature relationship and have a vital role to pay in responding to environmental problems. Because communication is central a civilisation's capacity to avoid collapse, environmental communica- tion is a crisis discipline responding the crises in the earth sciences. Science: Ecological literacy emerges out the movement away from science characterized by atomism, mechanism, objectivism, anthropocentrism, rational- ism and dualism. Post-normal science reflects a shift in epistomological premises following Kuhn's theory of paradigm shifts in science. Social Theory offers powerful tools of analysis that describe how pawer functions in saciety, exposing how and why ecological literacy remains marginal. Symbolic violence describes forms of social control wherein environmental Ecopsychology address our psychological relationship with the natural world. offering a radical re-visioning of ecological self. While denial is a 'natural' defense mechanism, we can shatter denial using practices from addiction therapy. Eco- psychology is strongly influenced by TEK (traditional ecological knowledge). Visual Communication Within the context of an increasingly visual culture, visual communications can facilitate ecological understanding through display of complexity, context, connections and causality. Visuals can nurture qualitative whole systems thinking and even, potentially, an emergent ecological perception. Praxis No.32 - Version 3.2 - Jaruary 2012 discourses reflect the interests of powerful economics/political interests.
