Interested in Sustainability?

Three years ago I had the fortune of finding out about an organization that has been focusing on sustainability, ecology and diversity since the 1970’s.  The organization is called ISEC or International Society for Ecology & Culture.

They have been working in Ladakh, also known as ‘Little Tibet’ since this time.  Ladakh at one time was a place where being 100% self sustainable was the norm.  It has been used as an example and study of what can be an ideal way to live.  I went to Ladakh and volunteered with this amazing organization for 4 weeks, living on a farm and learning about the culture as well as what we can do in the United States to make a difference.  It was a journey that changed my life.

Since this time, ISEC has gotten more and more involved with education around sustainability.  If you are interested in learning more about this subject and organization, I strongly suggest you check out their website.  They have books, videos, and articles.  Of course, if you want a greater experience, you can always volunteer!  Whatever you choose, it is a great resource in a time of great need.
