Summer 2000 Courses in Social Ecology

Social Ecology

The Institute for Social Ecology (ISE), located amid central Vermont's
rolling mountains, has been a center for education and action based on the
ideas of social ecology since the 1970s. The ISE and its programs also serve
as a forum for serious dialogue among ecological, social justice, and
anti-capitalist activists, as a laboratory for new ecological technologies,
and as a resource for community groups around the world.

For the summer of 2000, the ISE is again offering its two widely acclaimed
programs: Planning, Design and Construction for Sustainable Communities,
followed by Ecology and Community.

Planning, Design, and Construction for Sustainable Communities
May 26 - June 16, 2000

Using the ISE's 50-acre site as a laboratory, we will explore design
principles and practical skills that can be applied to any task: a building,
a garden, an orchard, or a campus. There will be demonstrations, hands-on
projects, and discussions on:

* Layout and Design Principles
* Drawing, Drafting, and Mapping
* Permaculture and Ecological Restoration
* Construction Techniques
* Principles of Sustainability
* Organic Agriculture
* Appropriate Technologies

Ecology and Community
June 23 - July 21, 2000

This month-long, intensive residential learning experience offers workshops
and practica in the field of social ecology. Participants will study and
live together in a community setting that reflects the ISE's belief in
self-reliance, democracy, and participation. There are a variety of
educational activities, from studies on activist history and strategies, to
philosophical explorations of society and nature, to work in the gardens.
Courses include:

* Culture and Resistance in the Global Economy
* Ecological Movements and Social Activism
* Key Concepts in Ecofeminism
* Radical Agriculture and Ecological Technology
* Toward Directly Democratic Communities
* Public Education and Community Action

The ISE offers a college-level curriculum. Students may receive credit on
successful completion of their work. This option is available as an outside
educational program of Burlington College for an additional fee. The
acceptance of transfer credit is at the discretion of the student's home

The Institute for Social Ecology was established in 1974 and incorporated in
1981 as an independent institution for the purposes of education, research,
and outreach in the field of social ecology. For over a quarter of a
century, ISE has inspired individuals involved in numerous social change
movements to work toward a directly democratic, liberatory, and ecological
society. The educational programs of the Institute for Social Ecology have
served more than 2,000 students around the world.
