Elise Boulding: nurturing children’s relationship to the planet

“We’re never going to have respectful and reverential relationships with the planet – and sensible policies about what we put in the air, the soil, the water – if very young children don’t begin learning about these things literally in their houses, backyards, streets and schools. We need to have human beings who are oriented that way from their earliest memories.”  – Elise Boulding (1990)
