- Connections between the ecological crisis and social justice issues.
- The patterns of linguistic colonization within the dominant, ethnic, and indigenous cultures.
- The nature of the cultural commons of the dominant, ethnic and indigenous cultures--including traditions of self-reliance, local democracy, smaller ecological footprint, and alternatives to market-based consumerism.
- Threats to the cultural and environmental commons, as well as to the traditions of social justice.
- Impact of different technologies—including print-based technologies—on consciousness, traditions of community and individual self-sufficiency.
- How to overcome the silences in science and environmental education classes about taken-for-granted ecologically unsustainable cultural patterns of thinking.
- The aesthetics of ecologically sustainable lifestyles.
- The connections between health and happiness issues of lifestyles centered more on participating in the local cultural commons.
- Religious traditions and issues of social justice and ecological sustainability.

- Curriculum guides that assist classroom teachers in presenting ecologically sustainable and unsustainable practices in different areas of the curriculum.
- Curriculum guides on how to reinforce ecological intelligence—from elementary classrooms to graduate school.
- Curriculum guides on ecologically sustainability and religious issues for home-schooling parents—which may focus on language, cultural commons, toxic chemical, and social justice issues.
