How to use the posters

 Read a sample from the facilitators handbook on how to use the posters to get your community started on their integral ecology journey, or use them to rejuvenate projects, integrating concern for nature, justice for the poor, commitment to society, and interior peace, into existing projects.
These posters are designed as a tool to use integral ecology as a focus for any group listening or survey. You can use them however you like. We have made some suggestions in the facilitators handbook.
