The branch of ecological philosophy known as Deep Ecology takes a holistic view of the world in which humans and animals live alongside natural processes. The core principle is that the individual parts of the ecosystem work together and that the living environment as a whole has the right to survive and flourish.Humankind is an integral part of the environment, and we play a huge role with all of our combined contemporary knowledge. The Deep Ecology philosophy or 'Ecosophy' has had a great influence on the green movement and green political parties all over the world.
The Norwegian philosopher Arne Naess is the man behind the phrase "Deep Ecology".
“Deep ecology and environmentalism hold that the science of ecology shows that ecosystems can absorb only limited change by humans or other dissonant influences. Further, both hold that the actions of modern civilization threaten global ecological well-being".
Ecology 2.0 is the equilibrium between human beings and nature as well as respect for the Earth's natural resources. It is this deep ecological mindset that asks more questions and has a longer lasting effect.
