Deep ecology & conservation of nature

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Deep Ecology is a philosophy of nature which sees that underlying the environmental crisis there is a psychological or spiritual disease stemming from the illusion of separation between humans and the rest of the natural world. Arne Naess, Professor of Philosophy from Oslo University, Norway, pointed out that our "ecological ideas are not enough to protect the Earth, we need ecological identity, ecological self". With a presentation which includes music and poetry, John Seed shows us how to nourish our ecological identity and align ourselves with Earth.
