Langscape Volume 3, Issue 1

This Langscape issue provides a platform for some of these alternatives to reach a wider public and make us realize that there ARE other ways of being in and engaging with the world—alternative paradigms founded on values that are not totally foreign to any of us, but that we have either forgotten, or have been led to believe no longer have a place in this world. These examples reveal that these alternative paradigms DO indeed exist and offer options to strive for a better world that includes the many peoples and life forms that share this earth. Join us as we explore Biocultural Diversity as an emerging paradigm in a changing world. We hope you will enjoy journeying with us through this special volume of Langscape, and that you too will share what you learn with others.
