Sol Center presents: Caring for the Earth: the Edwards Aquifer

This course has already started and it is probably too late to attend but it sounded interesting so I wanted to include information on it on the chance that you may be able to catch the last three sessions. Call the SolCenter office (210-732-9920) to find out.

From their website:

In this class, we will explore our interconnectedness and interdependence with the natural world through two lenses: 1) New legal approaches and 2) The needs of the Edwards Aquifer. We will share moments of prayer, reflection, and discussion based on short readings. Each of the four sessions will explore a specific approach - regulation, property, precaution, and rights - and several strategies within each approach, considering ways each strategy might or might not help the Edwards Aquifer.

Participants should attend the films, Trouble the Water, on August 29, 6:30 p.m. and Hurricane Ike Documentary on September 13, 6:30 p.m. This course is for any interested person who wants to further his or her Earth literacy and is curious why the legal system is not better protecting the Earth: teachers, grant funders, religious leaders, policy makers, activists, attorneys, volunteers, and students.

About the instructor: Libby Comeaux, a Texas native and Colorado lawyer, recently spent a year in Miami and Orlando at the Center for Earth Jurisprudence, founded as part of the Great Work envisioned by the late Thomas Berry.
