Global Reconciliation is calling for nominations for the 2018 Desmond Tutu Reconciliation Fellowship. Desmond Tutu's Reconciliation Fellowship is the premier award in the world recognising effective on-the-ground achievements in reconciliation. The 2018 theme of the fellowship is Environmental Care.
The relationship between human beings and the natural environment has always been dynamic. However, in recent times, this relationship has undergone a fundamental and unprecedented transformation. Much natural habitat has been destroyed which, together with other factors, has contributed to changes in macro and micro-climate systems. For the first time, human beings have acquired the capacity to not only to override natural processes but also disrupt or even substantially destroy much of the earth’s living environment. While the ultimate outcomes of these changes are uncertain, it is possible that the impact on human life, and the biosphere more generally, will be disastrous.
