Nantucket: Human System

Resilience: an art of balancing human and ecological services and functions

This capstone team is comprised of four amazing students with their independent studies addressing human-nature coupling systems. Why does it have to be so hard to work together and be healthy, wealthy, and sustainable? The fact is: this young generation inherited unacceptable  environmental and social issues; the good news is they are smarter and are fixing it. Abstract
