DEFINING ENVIRONMENTALISM
Pages 38

Inevitably, much of the green world view is about society, since it is concerned about the relationship between (Western) society and nature. It often says that we experience environmental problems because, at root, we have undesirable values about nature. These link with the undesirable way that, individually and in groups, we value and behave towards each other. Hence there is a specifically green critique of existing society and conventional values-what greens are against-together with beliefs about what future society should be like if it is to be sustainable and environmentally benignwhat greens are for.
