In the previous chapter, Ted Chamberlin suggests that learning may be focused more on recognitions than on acquiring information and ascertaining definitions. As such, it is important to identify some of the characteristics of a sustainable culture. Since everything is connected, a sustainable culture is able to recognize relationships. A sustainable culture concerns protecting biological diversity, as well as caring for ethnic diversity in terms of ritual and ceremonial diversity, language diversity, diversity of worldview, and recognizing how these diversities also play integral roles in the survival of the world. A sustainable culture is economically and socially just, since it is also capable of recognizing the wealth attributed to both corporate and individual accomplishments. This chapter attempts to summarize the fundamental features of a sustainable culture.
