Bioregionalism asks us to reimagine ourselves and the places where we live in ecological terms and to harmonize human activities with the natural systems that sustain life. As one of the originators of the concept of bioregionalism, Peter Berg (1937-2011) is a founding figure of contemporary environmental thought.
Covers issues ranging from environmental education and the nature of global multinational corporations, to the role of environmental activism and consideration of how democratically representative some campaigns may be.
What impact are we having on the environment around us? How can we limit the effect of human life on the natural world? These questions and more are considered in Advances in Sustainability and Environmental Justice volume 13, which looks at environmental philosophy, humanity's place in the world, and how we can live in harmony with our planet.
By building the framework for balancing technological developments with their social and environmental effects, sustainable practices have grounded the vision of the green movement for the past few decades.

An environmentalist belief that human societies should adapt to living harmoniously within bioregions. These are territories defined by natural rather than political conditions. A bioregion can be defined as an area in which topography, soils, plant and animal life, climate, weather, and human culture are relatively homogeneous and integrated. It may correspond with a watershed. The concept was formulated by environmentalist Peter Berg and ecologists Raymond Dasmann in 1970s northern California, but has not been taken up much beyond North America. Although bioregions share many of the ideas of classical regional geography, human geographers have not developed the idea.
