The way we view the environment has significant implications for how we interact with our landscape and treat it. This course will first discuss the different ways of viewing the environment. You will look into the indigenous people who don't see a separation between themselves and the land. You will then study the three different categories that most perceptions of land fit into. These include worth-ship, worship, and kinship. You will also study the concept of land as a commodity.

Conservation is the management of the biosphere so that it can yield the greatest sustainable benefit to present generations while maintaining its potential to meet the needs of future generations. This course will discuss world conservation, the importance of the environment, and the conflict between land development and conservation. It will also look into the Aboriginal peoples of Australia and their customs, traditions, way of life, and connection to their land.

This second installment of the Outdoor Education series of courses examines the environmental impact of human activity and conservation, environmental management, and sustainable living in the context of aboriginal Australia. Upon the completion of this course you will have gained a much stronger understanding of land management, of the main ways in which land is treated, and of outdoor recreation.
