The Cultural Edge

  • English

  • Listen

    We wrap up our seven-part thematic overview of the ocean edge this week by discussing the cultural edge: the place alongshore where we interact with nature, with our spiritual selves, and with each other. We assert that the ocean is the ecosystem that connects us all, bringing us together as one population of humanity and civilization, capable of discovering solutions that will benefit all living things. The Cultural Edge is part 7 of a 7-part series dedicated to the ocean edge, exploring what takes place there, from the real to the symbolic.
