The four ecologies - Leonardo Boff

Leonardo Boff is a Brazilian theologian, philosopher and writer, known for his active support of the rights of the poor and marginalized. He is one of the greatest global leaders of the environmental movement. He participated in the constitution of "The earth letter" and has won the Right Livelihood Award, known as the alternative Nobel. Leonardo Boff distinguishes four ecologies: environmental, social, mental and integral.

Environmental ecology Leonardo Boff

This first aspect is concerned with the environment, so that it is not excessively disfigured, with the quality of life, and with the preservation of the endangered species. See nature outside of human beings and society. Look for new, less polluting technologies, favoring technical solutions. This position is important because it seeks to correct the excesses of the voracity of the global industrial project, which always implies high ecological costs.
