The Great Work

Sustainability Louisville

Finding a Viable and Hopeful Future

Caring for the earth is of vital importance for the survival and well-being of our children and the children of all species. This course explores how we can make a transition from a period of human devastation of the Earth to one in which we will recognize and celebrate the sacredness of all creation and find our place within the web of life. It is a transformative educational experience that empowers participants to respond to our current situation with imagination, vision, and informed action. 

The goal is to engage in what Berry calls “the Great Work” of our time: to bring forth an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling and socially just human presence on the planet.  “The human and the entire universe exist in intimate relations with each other. Together we constitute a single sacred community.” – Thomas Berry
