Deep Ecology takes a holistic view of the world that human beings, nature, and animals live in. The basic idea is that the separate parts of the ecosystem such as humans, animals, insects, and natural function is seen through the Deep Ecology mindset.
Humankind is an integral part of the environment, and we play a huge role with all our contemporary knowledge. The Deep Ecology philosophy – or Ecosophy - has had great influence on the green movement and the 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 therefore equilibrium between human beings and nature as well as respect for the natural resources of the planet. It is the deep ecological mindset that has the long-lasting effect.
