Partnership

Partnership

PARTNERSHIP, the third program in the 'Home Place' series, explores the challenges faced by industrial societies as they shift from the present damaging, exploitative relationship with earth ecosystems towards a more sustainable partnership. The program shows how ancient cultures vanished because they lived beyond their ecological means, and shows clearly that present agricultural, forestry and fishing practices have us on the same course. Modern developments in ecologically-based forestry illustrate the kind of partnership which is possible, if ecosystem needs are respected.

'This video will enrich all viewers, from elementary school students to mature adults. Its filming of animals is noteworthy.' Science Books and Films

'This excellent series forces the viewer to take a hard look at our exploitive, damaging role as humans in the Earth's ecosystems...The narrative is easy to understand, yet it addresses these important issues in a sophisticated and thorough manner...highly recommended...an appropriate addition to public, school, and academic libraries.' Rue Herbert, University of South Florida, MC Journal

'As much philosophy as science went into these thought-provoking programs. The end result is an impelling video series of value in any library collection.' Teacher Librarian
