Abstract

The goal of this project was to understand the underlying social and philosophical issues revolving around the current environmental crisis, and then to put that information on public domain, in the hopes of informing the public. In order to do this, it was necessary to do a heavy amount of research into the sociological and philosophical literature, and then try to identify the underlying problem with regards to the relationship between humans and the rest of nature. It has been found that the crisis is deeply rooted with both the way humans interact with nature, and the way it is viewed. As such, it cannot be resolved through mere investment or technological bullets. A website was created in order to best put this information on public domain.
