Environmental Sciences

Many branches of science have opened up gaps in the worldviews that have guided us until now. Instead of frightening us, these insights propel our understanding of complex systems to another level and ultimately cause us to reconsider our relationship with nature.

Ideas such as "our genetic code is fixed" or that "nature is at our service" are challenged; ...breaking free of fixed ideas seems urgent. Ecosystems are complex, and human activity occurs at all levels: underground, on land, on the seas, in the atmosphere, and even in space.

Our value, including humanity's, is determined by what we bring to others and others' by what they bring to us. We are beginning to understand what each living thing brings to the whole, and we are wondering what humans really bring to the ecosystem on which we depend. Do we really understand it? The International Year of Basic Science for Sustainable Development proposes that we get to the bottom of it.
