Social innovation vocabulary: Deep Ecology


From Wikipedia:

Deep ecology is a recent branch of ecological philosophy (ecosophy) that considers mankind as an integral part of its environment. It places more value on other species, ecosystems and processes in nature than is allowed by established environmental and green movements, and therefore leads to a new system of environmental ethics. Deep ecology describes itself as “deep” because it is concerned with fundamental philosophical questions about the role of human life as one part of the ecosphere, rather than with a narrow view of ecology as a branch of biological science, and aims to avoid merely utilitarian environmentalism based on the well-being of humans alone.
