Learning Frameworks Overview

Human communities have always made socio-ecological decisions. From choices about what to eat, where to live, how to get around, to whether water is safe to drink, amongst many others. These choices are shaped by our values and cultural practices and fundamentally reflect what we call construals of nature-culture relations. Nature-cultural relations are the ways human communities construct their ways of thinking and being (everyday, institutional, legal, etc.) with the natural world. 

7 Dimensions of Ethical Deliberation and Decision-Making Framework about Socio-Ecological Phenomena

The socio-ecological deliberation and decision-making framework involves sensemaking across seven dimensions. These dimensions include making sense of both human and more-than-human values, needs, and behaviors across multiple temporal and spatial scales. Further, both implicitly and explicitly, deliberating about power and historicity are foundational across the dimensions.
