Entitled, Psychological Elements of Global Citizenship, the Project NatureConnect Orientation Course is published in the book The Web of Life Imperative and is a prerequisite for all other courses and functions of our Certification and associated Degree programs. This course lets you experience and share with others the organic eco-psychology of the Natural Systems Thinking Process. It assures you that if you find this course worthwhile, you will do well in the remainder of the program.
