Latest from World Ocean Radio: Toward New Definitions of Value

In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill will discuss the possibility that we may have to abandon previously valued systems for a sustainable future. He will ask, "What form might our newly valued world take?" and will suggest that we need not look too far into the past to find a new model for the future, taking a critical look at the sustainable, nature-based value systems of indigenous peoples, many of which were designed to support growing populations with limited resources.
