What is Integral Ecology ?

A deeper definition.....

“Integral Ecology weaves together the myriad approaches to the natural world in an effort to respond as effectively and timely as possible to the complex ecological problems that face ourselves, our communities, and our world in an evolving universe. In effect, Integral Ecology unites consciousness, culture, and nature in service of sustainability. People who are utilizing the Integral ecology framework recognize that it is not enough to integrate ecosystems and social systems. Instead, what is needed is an integration of subjective (e.g. psychology, art, phenomenology), intersubjective (e.g. religion, ethics, philosophy), and objective” (e.g. behavior, science, systems analysis) realities”.
