Earth Ethics Institute opened its doors, as the Environmental Ethics
Institute, in 1993 and has been a catalyst for introducing
administrators, faculty, staff and students at Miami Dade College to
a new way of thinking called "Earth Literacy." Grounded in the
profound implications of the story of the evolution of our
14-billion-year-old universe and the developmental process out of
which the Earth and all life emerges, Earth Literacy fosters respect
for Earth and life in all its diversity.
Earth Ethics Institute provides resources, workshops, and programs
for the Miami Dade College community that encourage the integration
of the knowledge, values and skills needed for a sustainable way of
life into all practices and disciplines.
EEI fosters an awareness of global interdependence,
ecological integrity through biological diversity and the natural
processes that sustain life.
