Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
Every dollar we spend is a vote for or against the Earth. These Bioneers call us to recognize that economics is actually a subset of ecology, not the other way around. Behind most environmental harm is an economic motive, so how do we move from the love of money to the love of life? In this program: the many faces of activism.

Inspired by the philosophies of the Deep Ecology movement, the Bioneers are heroic examples of people living as if nature mattered. Join us as we look deeply into the magic and mystery of the convergence between leading-edge science and ancient wisdom for a Declaration of Interdependence for the new millennium. Though these programs were produced in the 1990s the contents of this series are timelessly relevant.
