Environmental Anthropology Engaging Ecotopia PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Environmental Anthropology Engaging Ecotopia free pdf In order to move global society towards a sustainable "ecotopia," solutions must be engaged in specific places and communities, and the authors here argue for re-orienting environmental anthropology from a problem-oriented towards a solutions-focused endeavor. Using case studies from around the world, the contributors - scholar-activists and activist-practitioners - examine the interrelationships between three prominent environmental social movements: bioregionalism, a worldview and political ecology that grounds environmental action and experience- permaculture, a design science for putting the bioregional vision into action- and ecovillages, the ever-dynamic settings for creating sustainable local cultures.
