Who Are We?

We are a group of practitioners, activists, facilitators and thinkers in the domain of Deep Ecology and the Work That Reconnects in Australia and New Zealand. Through this website we aim to refresh and update access to the wealth of Deep Ecology and Ecophilosophy material already available.

We are also directing our energies to the challenges confronting us: a world where climate change is already upon us, a time of isolation, uncertainty and anxiety brought about by pandemic and conflict. For us, part of this means re-imagining the ways Deep Ecology theory and process is made accessible, including via online workshops.

In addition elders of the movement such as Arne Naess, our approach draws great inspiration from the work of Joanna Macy, and from the life and work of John Seed. We acknowledge the rich vein of nature connection which John has fostered in the Deep Ecology movement as it manifests in Australia and Oceania.
