    Abstract:
    An ecosystem theoretical and practical framework is posited for the evaluation and planning of advocacy, communication, public policies, research and teaching programmers, intertwining four dimensions of being-in-the-world (intimate, interactive, social and biophysical), as they combine, as donors and recipients, to induce the events (deficits/assets), cope with consequences (desired/undesired) and contribute for change (potential outputs). Earth’s regeneration and mankind’s regeneration, as faces of the same coin, are addressed simultaneously, in space and time, for their mutual support. Goals and new paths to reach them contemplate a set of values, norms and policies that prioritizes socio-ecological objectives, human well-being, natural and built environments, the aesthetic, ethical and cultural meaning of the existence.
    Notes:
    Challenges are conceptual, more civic and political than technical; programs should promote climate justice innovations and catalyze social change toward a more equitable, renewable-based future. The contemporary and inter-sectional crises involving the environment, economy, society and politics, imply a fundamental transformation of social values, beliefs and practices in many sectors of society in terms of the paradigms of development, growth, wealth, power, freedom.
