Outdoor Education - Ways of viewing the environment
Ways of viewing the environment
The way we view the environment has implications for how we interact with
our landscape and how we treat it. Do we see humans as an integral part of
ecosystems  or do we treat them as a gymnasium? These understandings
become the cornerstones of the differing arguments people have over land
This resource looks at different ways of viewing the environment. It looks
at land as a commodity as well as the ways in which indigenous peoples view
the land. The focus questions provided require you to further your
understanding of this topic through your own research.
Firstly, view the video to hear an address given to the western world by a
Native American delegate. It illustrates the strong relationship indigenous
people have for their environment.
