CNL in a nutshell

Teachers want and need encouraging visions of the future, not disaster scenarios. Because environmental issues and climate change are often discussed in the context of catastrophes: from species extinction to floods and glacier melting, to virus pandemics and forest fires. In response to future anxiety and climate concerns, the concept of CultureNature Literacy (CNL) focuses on cultural sustainability.
