The context for this course:
Because we now realize that we are alive -- with millions of other species -- on the only blue,
life-supporting planet in the known universe we must, as cosmic citizens, learn to....

...embrace the full range of humanity in all of its unfamiliar forms,...

...struggle together toward a common goal of global sustainability,...


...cherish what now remains of humankind's
moment in Earth's self-renewing and ever evolving web of life.

"Let the world change you...

... and you can change the world."

Che Guevara


Your task in this course -- and well beyond it -- will be to find your voice, join the chorus,
and sing your heart out with all the passion and commitment you can muster.
Sing as if your life depended upon it....because, in fact, it does.

T.C. Weiskel
