A grand theme of this web-site is the clash between the human-made ‘Machine World’  and the Natural World. Documents in this section focus on the economic, political, social and cultural ‘macro-systems’ in which educational systems are embedded. Exponential but unsustainable demographic, economic and technological growth and related resource depletion characterises modern societies. The documents in this section relate to the non-natural world created by human ingenuity that is now so dominant that humans have become the main ‘geological’ force that is changing the planet’s natural systems (land, water and air) in the Anthropocene Era.
