“Now more than ever, we need people who think broadly and who understand systems, connections, patterns, and root causes … how to think in whole systems, how to find connections, how to ask big questions, and how to separate the trivial from the important.” –David Orr, Earth In Mind: On Education, Environment, and the Human Prospect, 1994.
