Abstract
There is a significant risk that the current pro-environmental efforts embedded in the
prevailing paradigm (shallow ecology) will not be sufficient to solve the increasing number,
severity and urgency of environmental/societal challenges – at least they appear to be unable
to solve the problems in time. Through literature review and case studies, this thesis author
explores how humans having direct nature experiences – by reconnecting with nature – seem
to have positive impacts upon individuals and societies at a deeper level, which can lead to
more pro-environmental consciousness and behavior1.
