College of the Atlantic is an experimental liberal arts college located on the shores of Bar Harbor, Maine. It hosts 340 students, all following one major: Human Ecology. We study through human ecology, with a lens of relationships between humans and their natural and social environment. And this is the perspective Earth in Brackets brings to the UN negotiations and other fora we attend: a conception of the world as a system where each part impacts the others, and humans tend to have particularly negative impacts on other forms of life. Another world is not only possible: it is necessary.
