Ecoliteracy concerns understanding the principles of organisation of ecosystems and their potential application to understanding how to build a sustainable human society. In the coming decades, the survival of humanity will depend on our ecological literacy, our ability to understand the basic principles of ecology and to live accordingly.
The urgent importance of ecological literacy in today’s world, where young people are faced with escalating environmental challenges, including climate change, depletion of resources, and environmentally linked illnesses. This generation will require leaders and citizens who can think ecologically, understand the interconnectedness of human and natural systems, and have the will, ability, and courage to act differently.
Our nature blindness is lethal and destructive to the living world. Each generation is normalising the rapid decline of our environment, and the devastating extinction rate.
A phenomenon called plant blindness means we tend to underappreciate the flora around us. That can have disastrous consequences not only for the environment, but human health. Most modern humans can’t name more than a few wild plants. This is true of most people in most cities in the world. Urban dwellers have been separated from nature; there’s disconnect between us and the environment, and we’re blind to the natural world around us.
Many of our biggest challenges of the 21st century are plant based: global warming, food security and the need for nature-based solutions that might help in the fight against climate change. Without a basic knowledge of plant structure, function and diversity, there’s little hope of addressing these problems. More than 28,000 plant species are used medicinally, including plant-derived anti-cancer drugs and blood thinners.
