The Department of Sustainable & Regenerative Living was founded and continues to exist in response to the many environmental and social challenges humans face today, with climate change, environmental pollution and degradation, habitat loss and species extinction compounding with social inequity and injustice, exploitation, general, ethnic and political violence and an array of technological threats to form an existential crisis of unprecedented scale and proportions. In recognition of the interconnected nature of all aspects of global society SRL takes a holistic approach to the study and practice of sustainability and regeneration.
Sustainable & Regenerative Living is dedicated to discovering, exploring, debating and refining positive responses to these issues, with the primacy of consciousness as the ground state of all things as the fundamental tenet. The perspective of consciousness as primary, unique to MIU, offers a pathway away from seemingly intractable problems and inevitable destruction and dystopia, in the direction of a better world for all life on planet Earth. This means, first, becoming in touch with our own internal, spiritual nature, and with the wonders of the natural environment, and on that basis renewing and restoring the relationships and communities on which felicitous human societies depend.
Sustainable and Regenerative Living means moving beyond doing less harm and being less bad to co-creating environments in which all life can thrive. We integrate inner and outer sustainability for thriving, equitable communities, and a flourishing planet. Come join us for the adventure of a lifetime.
